English Symmetrical, Two Knights transposition

Today’s blog entry is from is from an online, turned-based game. White opened with d4, I tried to respond with the Benko Gambit, and White transposed to an English opening variation. We traded blunders in the early-middle game, then White did not see the seriousness of my King-side attack. The material was even when White resigned, but his position was lost.

The variations and move symbols are Houdini’s (1.5 w32), diagnosed with ‘Scid vs PC’ at 10 seconds per ply. The opening book reference is Stockfish. The verbal comments are my thoughts during the game and my interpretations of the analysis provided by Houdini. The score chart is at the bottom of this entry.

This game features a large space advantage, coupled with mistakes common to a cramped position and a King-side attack leading to White’s resignation.
