SP720

1. c4 Ngf6 {Personally, I would play f6 here or later, as the pawn structure will then serve to blunt my bishops. But of course, Ngf6 is playable.}

2. b3 d5 {yea, so d5 I guess falls into the “tricks of 960” :) This move is really bad as black’s king is rather exposed. Much better is b6 or even d6 keeping the position closed. Black should keep the pawns in front of his king for the time being, at least until his king is castled.}

3. cxd5 Nxd5 4. e4 Nf4 {This move loses so N5f6 was preferable. After Qd3+ Nd7, black is cramped and has a bad position, but he is not losing.}

5. g3 {so we can see now that black will lose a piece and with it the game.}

5… Ng6 6. Qd3+ {Nd6 e5 and black’s pretty much done. I didn’t even notice how weak Black king was until black played d5} { Black resigns } 1-0
