I quite enjoyed this game which was my first win against Poland - a very high ranking team - their board 2 player.
It demonstrates how nice it is to play the English opening with the White pieces. White simply gained space, and later got a dangerous pawn to f6. This led to winning a piece due to Blacks king being in grave danger.
♡ 111 ( +1 | -1 ) Good gameThematic play, I can see you have studied your English :-)
Your opponent played very passive setup, IMO for example 4...Bc5 was more promising (or 3...d5 etc). Transposing to Botvinnik system was possible too, although after 2...Nf6 black can no longer play Nge7, preparing f5. For example 6...g6 7.Nge2 Bg7 and it is not so easy to find counterplay against f4 etc. Also after 9.h3 Be6-Qd7 was mistimed because it only ended up losing two tempis...
One trick - if black has played Nc6-d6-Be6-Nf6, thematic way to exploit it is Nd5! The point is black cant play Nxd5?? and Bxd5 gives up two bishops. Also after Nd5! you can play Be3 safely because black cant use the same idea - Nd4 Nxd4...
There were some other moves I might have preferred, like 14.Be3 (to prevent Nd4 and prepare g5 break). Also I am not so sure was the attack going forward so harmoniously all the time, for example after 16...Bg5! it is not so easy to see how to make further progress. Also I expected c6 sooner, since a4-a3 really wasnt promising much.
I only had a somewhat brief look at the game so cant offer any detailed analysis, but anyway...its nice to see I am not the only English player here :-)
