Moscow Variation of Slav

Post by hoopy on January 25th 2010, 6:25 pm

I paid the money so I though I would have a go. I have recently been introducing myself to the Semi Slav moscow variation. I have now played about 6 games winning 4 being destroyed in two. Average opponent about 2050. In all games the positions are completely wild & I am not sure how much of the ICS strategy I can use and how much is about tactical calculations. One thing I do know. It is not designed for 16 minute games. This is not the most complex one but one that is relatively easy to follow. (& I win!)

Interesting game, i looked up in my games for slav opening, and i must admit there are almost none (i found no slav at all, and less than 10 semi-slav in my 2009 games).

As white i mainly go for Panov-Botvinnik variation so the pawns disappear, and as black i never though about advanving my kingside pawns so early.
So i like your game ideas, the way you let your king in the center, while never in immediate danger, and the final leading to the rook sacrifice is very nice.

The Q sack at move 21 blew my mind 0.0 great finish! I'm going to start studying this opening system tonight :]

Yeah, phone browsing isn't as complete as they'd have you think... unfortunately.
