Default Analysis Please

Played at the Iowa Open this weekend. Motto for this game: "Damn the
torpedoes.....full speed ahead!" (Had a little sputtering during the
middlegame, but came out alright in the end.)

Any and all comments are welcome.

1.c4 e5 2.Nc3 Nf6 3.Nf3 Nc6 4.d3 Bc5 5.g3 d5 6.cxd5 Nxd5 7.Bg2 Be6 8.0-0 f6

Well, it looks to me like you've got yourself a yugoslav attack with the
colors reversed. The extra tempo should be very valuable to white but
he's already squandering it. -a6 in the yugoslav is often a patzer
move--black reflexively thinking he needs to launch a pawn storm, when
in fact his pawn storm is doomed to come in second and he needs to
attack with pieces. Here white has an extra tempo, so this move
shouldn't hurt so much, but it's still not smart.

g5 11.Rc1 Bb6 12.Na4 h5 13.Nxb6 axb6


More poor play from white. He uses a lot of tempi to capture this
bishop, and he allows black to protect the c5 square. 13.Nc5! was much
stronger, as Bxc4 Rxc4 is basically forced (else Qmoves, Nxe6
thankyouverymuch and black's attack will go nowhere). Now white doens't
have the c5 square, which is basically thematic in this sort of
position, and the exchange sacrifice on c6 is much less damaging.

This is a classic case of the doubled pawns not hurting one bit.

14.Bc3 h4 15.Nd2


What the hell does white think he's doing? This is pure madness. He's
going to get mated down the h-file in a hurry.

Bh3


At this point, were I white, I'd be seriously considering the exchange
sacrifice 16.Bh1. With the N out of position, Bxh3 is obviously
hopeless.

16.Bxd5 Qxd5 17.e4


This doesn't slow down the attack one bit, and takes a potentially
useful square away from the white knight.

Qe6? 18.Re1 hxg3 19.fxg3 Rd8


I probably would have played 0-0-0 here, as white's attack is going
nowhere, the open a-file isn't really that scary, and it connects your
rooks. Now your king is sort of in the way.

20.Nf1 Rd7 21.Ne3 Rdh7
22.Rc2 Nd4 23.Bxd4 exd4


Is it easier to see now how the K on c8 might actually make your
position a little more solid? He's got no attack.
