A45 Trompowsky Attack (1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 e6 3.e4 Be7 4.e5 Nd5 5.Bxe7 Qxe7 6.c4)

A45 Trompowsky Attack (1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5 e6 3.e4 Be7 4.e5 Nd5 5.Bxe7 Qxe7 6.c4)

The game below was played at GameKnot in paweljaniak's mini-tournament I. After this game my opponent, muek54, withdrew from the tournament and our other game was never played. It was the only game that muek54 did not play in this mini-tournament. I was on second place in the final standings with 8.5 points. Muek54 was able to get 4 points and finished 5th in the tournament. The winner of the mini-tournament will be paweljaniak (2149), who won all but one game. That one game he lost to muek54 interestingly enough. This win also enabled me to get to my peak rating at the time at GameKnot, which was 1794. My current rating is 1832 there. This game was also my 100th game there.

The first mistake of the game was played by my opponent on move 20, before that there were some inaccuracies, but nothing that shifted the advantage in favor of either player in a major way. 20.exf6 was a much better alternative. Muek54 played the final mistake of the game on move 30, after which the game was completely lost for him.
