1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d3 Bc5 4. g3 (4. c3 {would also be possible with a
later b4 and a4 for expansion}) 4... d5 5. exd5 Qxd5 {Black is ahead in
development but his queen can be attacked with tempo. Black also has better
central control. However with the white pawn no longer on e4, a bishop on g2
would have tremendous scope along the diagonal. Still it depends whether white
can make his pieces cooperate with the presence of his g2 bishop. I am not
sure if black has already equalized here.} 6. Nc3 (6. Bg2 Nf6 (6... Nge7 7. O-O
Bg4 8. Nc3 Qd7 $15) 7. O-O Bg4 $15 {Black is active and menacing and has
easily equalized the game}) 6... Bb4 $6 {I felt suspicious about this move.
The bishop looked good along the a7-g1 diagonal. Would be pointless to
relocate it to b4 as exchanging it to double white's pawn would not give black
anything. white's bishop pair would give its owner a slight edge} (6... Qd8 {
This was probably black's best move}) 7. Bg2 Bg4 8. O-O {Renewing the threat
of winning the queen as the pin on c3 no longer exists} Bxc3 9. bxc3 {White's
doulbled pawns is quite good as it takes away b4 and d4 from black's knight.
Black's former active piece, the dark squared bishop was one of the best piece
as it looks over white's monarch is now removed and this gives white an edge
from the opening as both his bishop pair would have nice scope pretty soon} e4
$2 {Black has not completed his development and his king is still stuck in the
center yet he wants to open lines. This will lead to his demise. He should
have played the more natural Nf6 and castles or even Nge7} (9... Nf6 {This was
much better, aiming to bring his last undeveloped piece bearing down on
white's center. White must now develop a constructive plan according to his
pawn structure. I have 3 main plans here:- 1. Utlise the semi open b and e
files for my rook but first play c4 to evict black queen from attacking my a
pawn. Should black play b6 to guard his b pawn from frontal assault, the white
c pawn can be used as a battering ram. 2. mobilise my c and d pawns by
advancing it at the right moment but MOST IMPORTANTLY dun let this pawns split,
it happened in the game that led to various difficulties for me. 3. I have
seen in a game white played Ng5 and f4 to attack e5 pawn and once this pawn is
exchanged white's c and d pawn trio would shoot up the board. 4. Black e pawn
would be weak. Thus, a configuration of Re1, Bb2 and Nf3 would pose central
issues for the second player.} 10. Nxe5 $4 Qxe5 11. Re1 Bxd1 12. Bxc6+ (12.
Rxe5+ Nxe5 {Totally losing}) 12... bxc6 13. Rxe5+ Kd7) (9... Nge7 {Here the
knight can be rerouted to d5 or f5 and this unblocks the f pawn where f6 can
be played to strengthen black's center}) 10. Qe1 $1 $18 {Proud of this move.
Adds an attacker to the e pawn and removing it from pin. The c3 pawn is also
protected but this is not so important as white has to play c4 anyway. Now
white has a nice way to win the pawn without breaking up my pawn formation.
The point is due to the pin along the e file and also g2-d5 diagonal.} (10.
dxe4 $2 Qxd1 11. Rxd1 Ne5 {Would be losing the exchange ||||} {I analysed til
11. ..Ne5 and concluded black is better. However, Fritz showed this
continuation} 12. Rd3 Nxd3 13. cxd3 Nf6 14. d4 {Surprisingly Fritz gave this
variation as slightly better for white. It seems that white strong center and
bishop pair compensates for the exchange.}) 10... O-O-O (10... Bxf3 11. Bxf3
Nf6 12. Bxe4 Nxe4 13. f3 f5 ({Fritz gave this line which I missed.} 13... Qc5+
14. Kg2 Qxc3 15. Qxe4+ $18 {White still remains better}) 14. fxe4 fxe4 15. Rf4
$18) (10... Nf6 11. Ng5 $18 {black e pawn is lost}) (10... f5 11. Nd4 $5 {Idea
of unleashing the g2 bishop on black e4 pawn. Also a pawn sacrifice to to gain
a tempo on queen and preventing black from completing his development} ({Fritz
generated line. It seems to follow the principle: Open up the position when
your opponent is behind in development. Besides, with me winning a pawn, Fritz
recommends exchanging queens to enter the endgame with the bishop pair and a
pawn up.} 11. dxe4 fxe4 12. Ng5 O-O-O 13. Qxe4 Qxe4 14. Bxe4 Nh6 15. h3 Bd7 16.
g4 $18) 11... Nf6 (11... O-O-O 12. Bg5 {wont be good cuz of} (12. dxe4 fxe4 13.
Bxe4 Qc4 14. Nxc6 bxc6 15. Qe3 (15. Be3 Be2) 15... Bh3 16. Re1 Nf6 {White
should be better being a pawn up}) 12... Re8) (11... Nxd4 12. cxd4 Qxd4 {Pawn
sac to keep black undeveloped. White retains a nice advantage but here is a
critical position. Only one moves maintains white's big advantage. When giving
up a pawn, I should give greater emphasis on evaluation to find the best
continuation. This is a dynamic position where more aggresive and prompt
decisions has to be made. I have to bear in mind that black b7 pawn is weak
and I have the semi open b line and x ray attack with my g2 bishop. If I had
recognized this, I would play more accurately} 13. Be3 {I just need to
exchange center pawns to open up the position for my bishops and also to
expose the black king} ({Fritz gives this move as more superior to my 2nd
choice of Be3} 13. Rb1 O-O-O 14. dxe4 fxe4 15. Rb4 $3 {b7 pawn and g4 bishop
under attack} Qc5 16. Qxe4 Nf6 17. Qxb7+ Kd7 {with a crushing attack}) 13...
Qe5 (13... Qa4 14. Qc3 Nf6 (14... Qd7 15. dxe4 fxe4 16. Bxe4 $18 {White's
bishops are so powerful in open positions. With blacks pieces in disharmony
this is winning for white}) 15. Qe5+ {White winning with black king exposed
and his rooks disconnected}) 14. dxe4 fxe4 15. Bf4 Qe7 16. Qxe4 ({Fritz gives
this move as way better than my analysis of queen exchange. Prob because black
king is exposed so its wise to keep the queens. SHud exchange queens only if I
am a pawn up with nice active pieces as in earlier lines} 16. Bxe4 c6 17. Rb1
$18 Nf6 18. Bg2 Bc8 19. Qxe7+) 16... Qxe4 17. Bxe4 c6 $18 {Winning endgame for
white}) 12. Nxc6 Qxc6 13. f3 Bh5 14. Bg5 O-O 15. fxe4 fxe4 16. Bxf6 Rxf6 17.
Rxf6 Qxf6 18. Bxe4 {White a pawn up and better position}) {Fritz still gives
this as a decent move surprisingly. He says my evaluation of this critical
position is very wrong. This move is not a blunder. Apparently my bishop pair
and extra pawn compensates for my queenside wreckage} 11. dxe4 $18 {[MY WRONG
EVALUATION]Horrendous move that tears apart my pawns. After black's reply,
white's doubled pawns are immobilized. ALthough I am a pawn up, my bishop and
queen is back home and it is unclear how is white going to crash into black's
queenside. After winning the e pawn, I would have:- 1. Better central control.
2. Active pieces 3. Bishop pair where all guarantees me a winning advantage}
(11. Ng5 $1 {would have been superb to sustain my pawn chain and also activate
my g2 bishop. With more active pieces and a pawn up, easier for me to arrange
an attack on the black monarch}) 11... Qc4 {Very hard to find a plan here with
rubbish pawn structure although im one pawn up. 1. Both kings are safe but
black's are abit more precarious as my bishop pair will eye his monarch and I
have the semi open b-file to work something. 2. Development is about to be
finished for both sides and there is nothing I can do take advantage of this
as black looks safe enough. 3. I have a 4 vs 3 pawn majority on the kingside
with the black king on the queenside. This is an endgame advantage. 4. The
d-file is open but my rooks are not connected. The half open b-file would be
good to post of my rooks and supported by my g2 bishop. Black is in control of
the d-file now. 5. My queenside pawns are fractured and is a liability. Black
queen is on an awesome post tying my rook down to teh defense of a pawn and
halting the advance of my c-pawns which are very weak. 6. In terms of minor
pieces, my bishop pair guarantees me a fighting chance but it is not in
operation now. Black's knights are not very good for now. BLACK PLAN
-------------- 1. Double/ Triple on the d-file. 2. Blockade white's weak
queenside pawns with his knights which would occupy wonderful outposts on c4
and maybe e5 and also c5 via b8 and a6. 3. Black trump card would be the weak
queenside pawns and open d-file. 4. A kingside attack plan would also be
possible but the plans aforementioned would be more direct and faster.
WHITE PLAN -------------- 1. Develop the bishop to eye black queenside,
prefably on e3 or f4 2. Lift the queen to connect the rooks. 3. Occupy
d-file and b-file. 4. Try to exchange off to an advantageous endgame 5.
Possibility of occupying d4 and any recaptures would help heal my pawn
structure.} 12. Be3 {Not a very good move as this blocks the queen's
protection of the d pawn} (12. Bb2 {lame square for the bishop. With queen on
c4, there is no way its gonna get any scope} Bxf3 13. Bxf3 Nf6 14. e5) (12. h3
{probably this is best as the bishop has been there for quite sometime} {Fritz
11 SE:} Bxf3 13. Bxf3 Nf6 14. Bg5 $14) ({Fritz 11 SE: BEST OPTION} 12. Qe3 Nf6
13. Nd2 Qa4 14. Nb3 h5 15. Qf4 Qc4 16. e5 Qxf4 17. Bxf4 Nd5 18. Bg5 f6 19. exf6
gxf6 20. Bxd5 fxg5 21. Bxc6 bxc6 $18 {My interpretation of fritz's variation
is that the bishop has no good squares to develop so should move the queen to
potentially connect the rooks. Then after defending against few threats
against the pawns on e4 and c2, seek to swap queens and enter the endgame with
one pawn up}) 12... Nge7 $18 {End of the opening phase and here I need to find
a constructive plan.[WRONG EVALUATION] Black has won the opening battle} (12...
Qxe4 13. Nd4 Qg6 14. Nxc6 bxc6 15. Bxa7 $18 {Black king looks reckless with
his position torn apart. I dont mind returning the pawn for better and active
pieces and a potential attack}) 13. a4 {Planning to launch this pawn to a6 to
dent black kingside and also to remove this weak isolated a pawn} f6 {To
control e5 and also prepare a kingside assault with g5 and h5} (13... Qxe4 14.
Nd4 Qg6 15. h3 {not good as this throws away a portion of my advantage} ({
Fritz gives} 15. a5 {as winning edge for white}) 15... Bd7 16. Qe2 Nf5 {black
is good here}) 14. a5 Rde8 $2 {A silly move..why not just Rhe8. Silly computer}
(14... a6 $14 {would be better to destroy my hopes and fix my weak a pawn.
Black is better}) 15. a6 b6 16. h3 {This move probably came abit too late.}
Bxf3 17. Bxf3 Ne5 18. Bg2 $18 {I initially gave this as slightly better for
black when actually I have quite big edge. As long as my position here with a
bishop pair and an extra pawn, I would be better} Kb8 19. Qb1 $6 {Preparing a
sac at b6. I was thinking of doubling on the b-file} ({Fritz gives the
following line as the best way to prepare my attack} 19. f4 Nd7 20. Qf2 Qxc3
21. Rfb1 $18) 19... Rd8 {Now coming back to the same spot. Dumb computer.
Wasting moves or prob hes arrogant saying "Im still gonna tear ur ego although
im wasting moves"} 20. f4 $4 {My king becomes more airy and I missed the
following intermezzo. Why f4 does not work now compared with 1 move ago is
that my queen have moved away from protecting the e3 bishop so this is a
tactical target} Qxc3 21. Bxb6 $4 {The loss of the dark square bishop makes
whites king weaker and black can invade the 2nd rank} ({BEST MOVE TO STAND
EQUAL AFTER THROWING MY ADVANTAGE} 21. Bf2 Nc4 {and the d-file comes under
heavy firepower}) (21. Bc1 Qd4+ 22. Kh1 Nc4 {White's pieces never cross beyond
the 2nd rank and black has a winning dominating game with the knight hopping
into the dark squares with decisive effect. FRITZ GIVES THIS AS DEAD EQUAL}) ({
23. Rfd1 Rd6 24. Rd2 Rhd8 $11 {Black having the pressure}) 21... cxb6 22. fxe5
Rd2 $19 (22... Qxg3 23. Qb3 Qxe5 $19 {white's pawns are a wreck and being down
material this situation will continue while black slowly build the pressuree
on d line if white is not careful}) 23. Rf3 (23. Qe1 {was probably the best
defense}) 23... Qxe5 24. Rb3 Nc8 {Not necessary} (24... Qd4+ 25. Kh2 Qf2 26.
Qg1 Rxc2 27. Qxf2 Rxf2 28. Kg1 $19) 25. Raa3 $4 {Bank rank weakness apparent.
Another blunder in time trouble missing my exposed king on the g1-a7 diagonal}
(25. Qe1 {still the best defense}) 25... Qd4+ $1 26. Kh2 Rd1 0-1

I played this (45+30 game) few days back and have fully analysed this (I think). I analyzed it on my own and then compared it with Fritz. Yes indeed it showed me certain lines which I missed and sportingly corrected me when my evaluation was haywire. I am new to the KIA havng previously played d4 so I am not so familliar with the position that I had. Would appreciate your comments on my annotations and how I can improve my analysis. If a particular line is given by Fritz, I would indicate so and if the variation does not have the name Fritz anywhere it means I calculated it myself. At certain parts, I did indicate my evaluation was wrong and I maintained both the right and wrong so I can compare how my wrong judgement differs from the right.
Here is the game summary:-
1. I played the KIA with black playing e5 Nc6 and Bc5 classical development.
2. Black correctly foreseen my lost of tempo with g3 and struck with 4….d5
3. After 6. Nc3, dubious 6….Bb4 which gave me a slight edge from the opening.
4. Black committed error on move 9 with a premature pawn break e4 with his king still stuck in center and kingside undeveloped. I have a winning advantage.
5. I missed strongest continuation 11.Ng5 and instead played 11.dxe4, fracturing my pawns. I evaluated this position wrongly and concluded black has equalized and is probably slightly better but failed to take into account static imbalances where my bishop pair and extra pawn outweighs my damaged queenside pawns.
6. The transition from opening to middlegame is an advantage to white but I wrongly evaluated that black was better due to my fractured pawns.
7. My advantage dropped to only slight after I organized the attack the wrong way on move 19.
8. Another poor move on move 20 that made the position dead equal.
9. 3rd consecutive mistake gave black the advantage after I sac wrongly on b6 without taking into account positional nuances.
10. 4th and final death blow after overlooking a simple tactic that made me lost my queen and the game.
11. 4 blunders on last 4 moves more than enough to cost me the game due to poor thinking, lost of focus and time trouble.
