Railwani, Tavish vs. Blackford, Ross - Scottish Championship International Open 2024 0-1

In the game between Railwani, Tavish (playing white) and Blackford, Ross (playing black) at the Scottish Championship International Open 2024 on July 11, 2024, the move Nc4 by white appears to be a risky decision. It overlooks the chance to defend a vulnerable piece and fails to capitalize on a superior attacking opportunity. The knight move sacrifices material needlessly and leaves a piece without ample protection, potentially missing an opportunity to force the opponent into a defensive position. Moreover, Nc4 does not contribute to a better defense of an unprotected piece nor does it effectively develop white's position for active play. Thus, in the context of this critical game, Nc4 seems to neglect crucial strategic considerations that could have favored a stronger position for white.
