I played Ken again, in the first round as White, same as last month. I suggested he might want to try …Nf5 instead of …Ng6 next time. Of course, I also forgot to mention the huge hole on d5 that he needed to watch out for. hehehe. Okay, so I was expecing an improved Milner-Barry Gambit, had he simply played …Bd7 there instead.
I believe that Ken still could have made a game out of it had he traded queens earlier on. By the time he did trade queens, I had actually missed the …Qb6+, but found it before he moved, and that Qd4 would be decisive, but actually I felt that something would be there once I noticed the check.
I have about 18 minutes remaining at the end of the game, recorded my times, and this game looks like such a simple win in hindsight, but OTB winning a “won” position does take quite a bit of time from the clock.
