Re: Latest Bristol Chess Times - Week ending 8th April

Sorry, didn’t realise it was such a problem.

Next time I’ll start a general Bristol Chess Times thread and only post to that.

Re: Latest Bristol Chess Times - Week ending 2nd April

No just lazy analysis on my part. Because the game started in a similar fashion to the one in the original article I remembered that e5 had been an interesting idea. Just played without thinking.

Should have looked at the board! Just gave opponent pawn for free on move 5!

Re: Latest Bristol Chess Times - Week ending 2nd April

No problem and nice example! I love Soltis writing.

I decided to “commit” tonight with 1. d4 d5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. e3 Bg4 4. Nd2 Qd7 5. c3 e5?!

Grovelled for a draw in the end.
