This video discusses a mid-game analysis of the on-going correspondence twitter game between iChess.Net (OCL) and the ChessTweets community. We played an off-beat variation as white against the Najdorf involving Be2 and a very early g4. Black (ChessTweets) responded with an early 0-0 and allowed white to gain space with g5. In this video, I discuss some of my preliminary research (portrayed in other videos on the iChess.Net Youtube Channel on this specific line against the Sicilian) that suggest impeding white’s early gain of space with g5 by the preventive move h6. The current game has headed in an interesting direction and I’ll enjoy to see how plays out.
