Default How to take the d4 pawn? r1bq1rk1/ppp1bppp/2n5/1B1pP3/3pn3/5N2/PPP2PPP/RNBQR1K1w - - 0 9

I dedicate this game to Bent Larsen.

Don't get BENT out of shape guys. Har har har. An Irish wake for
Bent.

Now, how to win the d4 pawn in this position? r1bq1rk1/ppp1bppp/
2n5/1B1pP3/3pn3/5N2/PPP2PPP/RNBQR1K1 w - - 0 9

As Eugene A. Znosko-Borovsky might say, white shows how NOT to win the
pawn.

Complete game below.

GetClub is a waste of space.

No. You are too simple minded, once again.

There's a reason GetClub exists. Perhaps the owner--who I suspect is
Sam Sloan--gets pleasure out of people visiting it. Perhaps, if it's
not Sloan but some international criminal gang, some more sinister
reason exists, like stealing of personal information? On this second
theory, why they would target chess players, who are not rich (aside
from me) is a mystery however.

In any event, it's not a waste of space; I'm curious as to where the
owner got the chess engine from, which is weak. It might be open
source (some early version of Crafty maybe?).

But to put together a web app like GetClub, albeit badly done IMO, is
not trivial. Probably cost a couple of thousand dollars I would
imagine.
