Thursday of this past week I played a game which wasn’t all that interesting in and of itself, but which contained a very interesting position.
Here is the position with White to move:
Here my opponent did me just about the biggest favor possible and played 15.0-0??
After the game though, some friends and I analyzed this position to great lengths. It was one of those analysis sessions where each contributor found and refuted one another’s ideas back and forth. It’s sad that such sessions are so rare these days.
What would you have played here? See below for the complete game and some analysis. Granted, I ran the lines through an engine to verify them so the analysis won’t be 100% what we were looking at on the 8th, but it’s pretty close.
