Black to move
On Sunday, I played 7...cxd4. 7...a6 is slightly more popular than 7...cxd4.
8.a3 cxd4 9.Nxd4 Qxb2??
White to move
A stupid, game losing blunder.
9...Bc5 was the correct move. I have played 9...Nxd4 is a few blitz games, usually exchanging quickly into a hopeless endgame where I have a bad bishop against a strong knight.
10.Na4 Bb4+ 11.Kf2 1–0
