#7: A blitz win against a GM

This was a 5 minute game on ICC against GM Alexander Goldin. Comments welcome. I have two feelings about the game. First, the Bxh6 sac was unsound, and second that 20... Be7 was a decisive error. I spent 22 seconds on 20.Ne2, he spent 13 seconds on 20... Be7, I spent (for some reason) 20 seconds on the follow-up 21.Nf4 and he spent 44 seconds on 21... Bg5. Other than that point of the game, the only other really interesting move was 26.h4!, which really cements the victory.

    Was this game on chess.com?  If so, how do you know the amount of time spent per move?

    Thanks!

    Very cool game!

    But I really think Black had it all fine, and especially after you 19. move --- since Black so easily can neutralize your threat with Ndf6, while further developing play, opening up a few threatening lines of play. But then instead Black made a somewhat mistaken and weaker move with 19...f5. And the Black's 21...Bg5 is a huuuge blunder, as it plans out the entire possibility of your attack. But real cool to see it unfold, speedy as it is.

    Good games are generally not the best played games - and this was a good game!

    I attended a chess camp about 10 years ago where Mr. Goldin was an instructor.  He was good hearted and gave an excellent simul, but his lessons were aimed too high for me at the time.  FM Alexander Betaneli was also an instructor there (great!! teacher).  GM Goldin had a peak rating of 2600+!
