4 Q-Kt4

5 B-KKt5 Kt-K2

5 . . . P-B3 followed by the aggressive P-K4 was more favorable.

Needlessly opening the game for his opponent. 6 . . . O-O was more prudent.

9 KtxP KtxQ

9 . . . KtxKt was better but not quite good enough. Then would follow 10 BxQ, KtxQ; 11 RxKt, Kt-Q5; 12 KtxKt, PxKt; 13 B-B6, O-O; 14 RxP!
