Why being obsessed with 1st page :s
Did not find the last one!
record 11 moves
Like a lot of others have said, "What's the point because the end positional quality is still even."
Okay, I lied. I just wanted to sound smart.
The key transition in the game occurs at move 4. Instead of living with being down simply a pawn, black makes an error in judgment and attempts to stay equal by 4. ... Bxe4?? Instead, black could make it a bit more interesting with 4. ... Bd6 or Rfe8 attempting to momentarily exploit white's weak back rank. It will probably be short lived because white can defend it easily by a dark bishop move off the back, but at least black will only be down a pawn with interesting center play, instead of a whole piece and hopelessly lost.
I'm still scratching my head.
Why did the puzzle end there and not before/after? .... good puzzle: typical for a Saturday.
Missed f5, great puzzle.
Never resign! Always fight till the end!
