White's Game-Losing Mistakes

White's game-losing mistakes appear to be ...

  • 3. dxe5, drags the d-Pawn off the d-file, creating Doubled Pawns on the e-file. But, the greater problem seems to be in wasting time with too many Pawn moves without developing any Pieces.

  • 4. Bf4, exposes the problem with playing 3. dxe5, as White now feels it necessary for a Piece (dark-Bishop) to unnecessarily protect the Pawn, rather than developing a Piece because it makes sound developmental sense.

    White is subsequently forced to spend development time protecting the wrong e-Pawn, while neglecting to secure his now-exposed King (note the a5-e1 diagonal, which Black exploits with his very next move: 5...Bb4+).

From 5...Bb4+, onwards, the way Black orchestrates White's Pieces to suffocate his own King, in the build-up to White's early Checkmate win, bears a resemblance to the Blackburne Shilling Gambit example, albeit Checkmating from the Queenside, rather than the Kingside.
