Analysing my games that is. Well and playing them I suppose.
Hopefully I can post the PGN properly...
I think black passed a chance in move 16: .. Bb3 wins the quality. Or I'm wrong?
Yes, as far as I can see that is correct. Seems both of us were to focussed on the isolated pawn. Thanks for pointing that out.
EDIT: Actually a discovered attack with d5 wins back material so it's fine lol.
Okay, un-edit the edit. With the right order Back is up in material.
Damn tactics, so complicated.
You seem to have the right idea.
You might like to study endgames more though, you seemed to have no idea how to improve your situation at the end.
Actually the endgame is probably my best phase, but like I mentioned on move 34, we both had 20 seconds left. Winning on time was far more important than a well thought out endgame.
And If that was a joke I feel like an idiot now >.<
Oh, ok ^_^
Just a word to the endgame: waiting for time control worked this time, but for future: move your king into the center and attack black's pawns.
Thanks to everyone who commented :) I definately learned a lot from this discussion.
