Paleface Attack (7), Rooks on open files

Today’s blog entry is from an online tournament game. The Paleface Attack, is usually successful in transposition to the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit. White placed both Rooks on open files and kept all his pieces centralized and active. Black neglected to castle and both his Rooks were out of play. This left White with a superior centralized force and the result was almost inevitable.

 The variations and move symbols are Houdini’s (1.5 w32), diagnosed with ‘Scid vs PC’ at 10 seconds per ply. 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 shows the advantage of a superior force cooperating against an undeveloped and uncastled opponent.
