In conclusion, Qf1 was the wrong move... but even if they played something better than that, they still lost 2 pawns and have a much better position with a strong attack!
you're pretty good.
Minuagtures are always more fun when Black wins :)
here: check this out to see something like in the MIDDLE GAME! this game shows how strong the attack can be if played right!
I guess it wouldn't cause so much a trouble for white if he didn't move 7. Bg5
I need to talk to you "mhchess13" so I'll send you a message later.
Of course, 12 Ke1? Qc1#
yeah, Bg5 was bad but Qf1 was the terrible and gives up the queen
yes, that is why, 11. Bb3 is much safer :) although white still loses the queen
hey mhchess13, want a game or so?
I don't play this Scotch game (3.d4) anymore, but remember playing 5.Nb3 as a better and active move, instead of giving up the Nd4. I think that's the start of the problems.
Scotch was popular only in the years 1825-1850, nowadays it is played as a gambit and as a surprise for the not-knowing black opponent.
Ok message me later then
And sure I would love to play a game with u
RomyGer, it was pretty popular in the 1990s as well when Kasparov used the Scotch in his World Championship match with Karpov
mhchess13 - this is a very standard trap but still nice game! But d5 doesn't win the queen unless he moves his Bishop to a bad square. However Black is totally winning way before that.
11.Bb3 Ba6+ 12.c4
BTW, the wrong move was Bg5
Nice game. After Bc5 white is in the defense. Nb3, Bd3, castling and Bc3 would be more appropriate. I enjoy the subtile way how black punished whites mistakes.
Expertise87- I agree with "But d5 doesn't win the queen unless he moves his Bishop to a bad square" like Bd3.... but white can always go Bb3, just like what Roeczak has said, so probably mhchess13, u should change your annotations a bit :), just to be on the safe side.
And please challenge me if anyone are interested, both live and online correspondence chess is fine :D.
