Philidor Defense (7), development and space

Today’s blog entry is from an online tournament game. White launches and early attack before Black shows any weaknesses. This gets White behind in development plus having less space to maneuver. Black makes an early inroad to the 7th rank which soon leads to a very pretty checkmate.

 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.

Do not attack without an opponent weakness.
