Have you ever come across a position where your opponent plays a blunder and you know it is, but couldn't convert it to a win? This has happened to best of us, especially in quick time control games.
Let’s look at the game below,
White is trying to add pressure on e6 pawn threatening to capture it, but the main idea of this is to create a weakness on d5 square. Note that this game was played in a 5 mins time control and my opponent missed the critical line of 11. ---- Nxd4 12. Bxd4 0-0 or 11. ---- Qb6, instead e5.
I knew this was a blunder but how to exploit it.
I think 12. Ne6 is the best move here since it creates lot of problems for black, he is left with few choices to capture the knight or not, which will eat up considerable time for all the calculations. my opponent quickly captured the knight and played 12. ---- Bc8 blocking his queen side rook and giving me a tempo. phase 1 of my plan to gain a foothold in d5 is complete. But I had one more obstacle, which is f6 knight. But if I remove it and play Nd5 I will be controling c7,d7,e7,f7 and all the light squres in kings side with f6 hanging + a temp.
I think the rest of the position is win for a white now.
