    I guess hammer didn't take this too well because in your next game you let him off with a quick draw (I guess that's why you had to avoid the Berlin that game ?)

    Always good to have some friendly rivalry otb lol, I've yet to meet a friend in a tournament game but I'm sure it will happen soon... and I will go at him 100% - so kudos for not doing one of those "GrandMaster draws", you went out there with your friend, played something neither of you had been studying up on, and won! Regardless of the result the way you approached the situation is worthy of 2 of these - CoolCool - and the fact you won, that's the bonus!

    Danny is right! For me, it was fun to see GMs play on opening that us "club" players play frequently.

    lol, refutation of the Berlin Defense. Can't wait to see it. Wink

    I think Sam would have played the Evans Gambit against 3...Bc5!

    thanks for the candid analysis of your game!  i liked that you pointed out what you didn't see in addition to what you did see correctly and incorrectly in addition to going into detail at what you were considering at critical points (when you played b3 and d4 for instance). very good.

    This was a good game and it brings to mind something about the quality of GM play ... you guys find the only move in most or almost all the situations where an only move (the old 'box' in the Informant notation) is needed or a series of only moves are necessary.  When there is that one slip, as you noted, it's enough to win.  Nice game!

    Thanks to the "boss" (aka Danny) for making Sam show this game, it was quite instructional to follow.

    Nice game, it's in the theme of other fried liver videos recently. I play this as black and the more I see it the more I hate it. I mainly play the 2 knights to avoid something like evans' gambit, did you want to play that against bc5 or is that too noobish :P?

    Nice game! I play Bd3 as well in this variation, so it was nice to see a current GM game with this line.

    I ran this game through Deep Fritz and you managed to play every recommended move after the opening cleared, lol must be nice!

    If you want more info on that crazy sharp variation after black plays the early Ng4, Roman Dzindzi did an in depth video on it back in 2009! Start at 19:00;

    Thanks for the video!
