Thanks for the game. I believe 14..0-0 may be the main source of Black's problems in this game (though as always improvements may be possible later). In general, I feel Black should refrain from castling having played h5 until he's ready to generate significant counterplay by doing so. It'd be great to see if you're able to improve on this as it'd certainly make a refreshing change from analysing a Najdorf and the positions are quite unique and interesting to work with.

Thanks for the game! I actually regretted venturing down this 5..Ba5 line as I hadn't really analysed the endgame in any detail. During the game, I felt that Black has a very unpleasant defensive task particularly after the strong 20.Kg2! and perhaps you could have tortured me by refraining from 21.c4 (tempting I admit, but I think White should only open up the position when there's a serious tangible advantage to be gained) and perhaps just keeping a grip on the position with something like 21.h3, slowly building up. It's certainly a defensible position for Black but it's hard to play and I may have had problems holding. Quite an interesting game to analyse in any case!
This game followed the following until Black's 17th: https://www.iccf.com/MakeAMove I always thought Black had vastly improved on other earlier reckless ideas such as 10...f6?! from Firman-Lputian 2005
Agreed, 10..f6 is definitely not the way to go. I think the whole position starting from around move 17 is the critical test of this Ba5 winawer but I'm not convinced it's an easy ride for Black.

Thanks for an interesting game. 9. bxc3 was a very crafty idea which I must say I'd overlooked in my prep for this variation. I think the response I found was quite reliable but other tries feel risky for Black
Thanks for your comment, I have seen that 9.Rxc3 has been play at top level but I couldn't find anything for White, so I have tried an improvised novelty, but the surprising 10..g5! was good and you equalized with ease after some precises moves!
Agreed! It'll be interesting to see how the Bf4 lines in the QGD develop in the future. Best of luck for your remaining games :)
