Interesting Position

Here is a position that arose after move 12 in a game against Stockfish:

1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 e6 3.c4 c5 4.e3 cxd4 5.exd4 Be7 6.d5 exd5 7.cxd5 d6 8.Be2 O-O 9.O-O b6 10.Nc3 Bb7 11.Re1 Nbd7 12.Bf4 Rc8

The continuation 13. Nd4! by Stockfish is brilliant and I wanted to make a note of it. (I would like to look at this position more carefully later, and hopefully I will!)

And here is the rest of the game:

13.Nd4 Nxd5 14.Nxd5 Bxd5 15.Nf5 Nf6 16.Nxe7+ Qxe7 17.Ba6 Qd7 18.Bxc8 Rxc8 19.Bg5 1-0

(I am at the moment struggling to find a widget/plugin for wordpress that could show a board. The whole process is a bit more involved than I have the time for right now. So, let see if we can fix that!)
