Chess Training for Grumpy Geezers
10.Qb3 - Developing with threat, but after the forced 10...O-O I can't help but wonder if your opponent got the better of it. After all, ...O-O was probably already in his plans and now your Q+B threatens nothing really but is vulnerable to ...Na5. Maybe 10.O-O.11.Ng5 "Too early to go forward?" - Maybe Bd3 to prepare O-O by preventing ...Na5? It also reinforces your center and aims at his king.12.e5 - Uhoh. This threatens nothing.12...d5! - Ouch. I don't see a save. :("16.Qxf7+?" - Well, at least you considered a desperado and didn't give up! :)
In game two, 24.Rb1! seems more robust.
