That first game was terrible. What were you thinking, sacing a Bishop for a pawn? Unless you have a mating net, that's ludicrous and tantamount to resignation.

I Agree with Mike about the Englund

Event "World Open"]

[Black "Sloan, Sam"]
[Result "1/2-1/2"]
[ECO "A40"]
[WhiteElo "2212"]
[BlackElo "1972"]

1.d4 e5 2.dxe5 Nc6 3.Nf3 Qe7 4.Qd5

Stockholm variation

f6 5.exf6 Nxf6 6.Qb3 d5 7.Bf4 Bd7 8.Nbd2 O-O-O 9.e3 h6 10.Bb5 g5 11.Bg3 g4 12.Bxc6 Bxc6 13.Ne5 Be8 14.Qd3 h5 15.Qd4 b6 16.Qd3 Kb7 17.h3 Bg7 18.hxg4 Nxg4 19.Nxg4 hxg4 20.Rxh8 Bxh8 21.O-O-O Qf6 22.Qd4 Qxd4 23.exd4 Bxd4 24.Re1 Bd7 25.Re7 Re8 26.Rxe8 Bxe8 27.Nf1 c5 28.Ne3 1/2-1/2

After 4. ... f6 this is book
White can try to keep the extra pawn with 4.Qd5!?, the Stockholm Variation as played, and a bit of analysis follows.

[Black can try a queenside fianchetto with 4...b6, or attempt to regain the pawn with 4...h6, but neither of those lines provide enough compensation for the pawn.]

Thus, Black usually challenges the e5-pawn immediately with 4...f6, when play continues 5.exf6 Nxf6 6.Qb3. Black does not get enough compensation with the delayed queenside fianchetto 6...b6 so the main line continues 6...d5.. After 6...d5,

as in the game, then 7. Bf4 as played is the variant.

[The main line is 7.Nc3 Bd7!, threatening 8...Na5, leads to complications and good play for Black (e.g. 8.Bg5 Na5 or 8.Qxb7 Rb8 9.Qxc7 Qc5).However, after the stronger responses 7.Bf4 and 7.Bg5 (intending 7...Bd7 8.e3), while Black retains some compensation for the pawn, White keeps an edge.]

This is rather equivocal advice to White who should play either the main line or the superior line, no? Though I like an earlier idea of turning this into a counter gambit [like King's gambit] or something like this

White's other major try for advantage is 4.Nc3 Nxe5 5.e4, securing a lead in development and leaving Black's queen awkwardly placed on e7. Stefan B├╝cker recommends 5...Nf6 6.Bg5 c6 7.Nxe5 Qxe5 8.f4 Qe6, with a playable game but some advantage for White.

White should obviously avoid the Qb4 traps etc

BUT Bravo Sam Sloan for essaying this against a master, and just desserts to share the point! I am playing the game in my head, so haven't looked beyond 7. Bf4 yet, but don't like it. Would rather play in a KG set up

You play blindfold Ray? Does it help or hurt your game? I've heard it argued both ways.

No this is more Bronstein than blindfold. Bronstein with the White bits once sat down and pondered for 15 minutes with his clock ticking at the first move. When asked why, he said, 'it's a complicated position'



But here in the Sloan game you have opportunity to play it tactically and take the pawn, or positionally by playing otherwise. There are considerable numbers of traps if you take it, with famously Black's Queen at b4 which you need figure out OTB, but better a looks beforehand.
