I am not an expert on the Winawer French, but after 4...c5, the main
line, almost the only move played at all, is 5.a3. This forces a
clarification: either the pin is broken after 5...Ba4 6.b4, or Black
exchanges 5...Bxc3 6.bxc3, the latter being the most commomly played
line. Thus there is no opportunity for Black to play ...cxd4 while the
Nc3 is still pinned.
Some material loss was inevitable after 5.Qg4 Ne7 6.Qxg7; a better
alternative perhaps was 6.dxc4. However, the worst mistake was a few
moves later: 6...Rg8 7.Qxh7 cxd4 8.a3 Qa5 9.h3?? -- This just drops a
piece for nothing. Least bad at that point was 9.axb4, giving up the
Exchange instead of a whole piece. After 9...Qxa1 10.Nce2 both sides
have rather ugly positions, White's probably uglier than Black's, but
the situation is far from hopeless.

Well, white can simply play 9. Rb1, this way the pawn a3 can take the
bishop again (and it also gets rid of the possibility of Bxc3, bxc3
Qxc3+ and takes the rook on a1), so that after 9. ... dxc3 10. axb4
Qxb4 11. b3 he can even continue without immediate loss of material.
But nonsense moves like 9. h3 are a speciality of Sanny's program. It
is obvious that this program has a massive horizon problem. I can
understand, that the consequences of 6. Qxg7 are beyond its horizon,
but a computer program should find 9. Rb1. Even your solution is
preferrable to what it played. It shows how weak this program is, when
in such a situation with concrete threats it is not able to come up
with something better than 9. h3 - not even at least develop an other
piece.

Greetings,
Ralf

I think R-b1 is also wrong. How will you save the pawn at a3 from
Bishop/Queen?

However Taylor Kingston suggestion is correct PxB(b4) gives a
exchange of lesser points.

Nope, no good. Instead of 10...Qxb4?, Black wins the rook with
10...Qa2!.

Definitely.

Ahem, yes. So much about my horizon limit...

??? What do you mean with that comment?

The move is wrong because later on Black can win the rook with Qa2, as
Taylor has pointed out.

I overlooked what Taylor Kingston found Qa2. I was

9. ..... R-b1 10. P(d4)xc3 P(a3)xb4 11. Qxb4

I was saying that this pawn will get killed. But better move as
suggested by Taylor Kingston is Qa2.

Taylor Kington Ranks IInd at GetClub.com So sure he can catch it.
nowadays Nomorechess is at Top of GetClub.com but his days are
numbered as a new player Zebediah is struggling hard to reach on top.

Time will tell if Zebediah succeeds in reaching at TOP.

The only qualification required to receive a high rating at getclub is
patience. You don't have to be a particularly strong player - you just
have to be willing to play game after game where the computer takes
hours to move.

So what? It's just a pawn! We are talking here about loss of pieces.
You have no clue about the values of the stones, don't you?
