    Did I screw up somewhere?

    At the appropriate time, I was going to push g4, and at yet another appropriate time f5.

    I figure Splittet knows this is comming.
    I didn't see the need for a3. I really liked h3, but to play g4 and f5 immediately. I always like black to play Nf6. It is a good move, but I enjoy the postions that come from it... An attack like that would give Splitted something else to do besides undermining our queenside
    Positionally, I don't like b3.

    I guess, I got too passive, and wasted some moves. The plan is still the same, though.

    As far as protecting the queenside, I wanted the base closer to the center to allow for a retreat.

    Probably should have started the attack already. True.

    Oh well again.

    Yeah. b3 was a blunder of sorts.

    EDIT: It is still black's move though right? Doesn't seem fair to allow for takebacks. So play away black team (Splittet).

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    Indeed, I am still just thinking on the move though.

    Mippus I am following the usual move order I play and usually do well with. I suppose it could be better, and I am being too cautious.

    I was thinking 15. Rc1 (so that the queen is free to join the attack)

    Actually, the last activity for mippus was a while ago. We can flag this as dubious move #3 for ygolo.

    You guys are going down in flames, and my FIDE Elo would be 1000-1100...

    I don't have a rating, and I don't know if mippus liked what I played. In many ways, having multiple people is not as good as 1.

    I don't have a rating either, only a FICS blitz rating of 1000, which is ridiculously low. :P

    I think this is where we are. It doesn't seem like we are going down in flames.

    My knight is on c6, otherwise everything seems correct. I love the position!
