Staunton Gambit, King and Queen aligned

Today’s blog entry is from an online tournament game. White plays the Staunton Gambit and Black leaves book early. White has a lead in development and continues to apply pressure on Black’s castled King. Black puts his Queen on the same diagonal with his King and soon succumbs to White’s King-side pressure.

 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.

A classic example of how to take advantage of poor development.
