and so close to mate! if only F7 was covered!
I was watching this game live. I actually thought you were winning.
I have just one comment. I think at move 25 you missed a good chance to have a windmill. For example, 25. Ne5 (protects the f pawn) 25...c5 26.Rxg7+ Kh8 27. Rxc7+ Kg8 28. Rg7+ Kh8 29. Rxb7+ Kg8 30. Nf6+ Kf8 31. Nxh7+ Ke8 32. Rxb6 Rd2....
Just a possible variation that will have you 5 pawns above your opponent. You were heading into time trouble though. Good Game.
Instead of 18. Ne5, how about h3 to oust the bishop and let your knight move? 18... Bh5 19. g4 and your kingside looks a bit funky, but you threaten Nd5 next move, and it doesn't look like black has much of an attack with his queen under potential threat and his light bishop shoved to the side.
I don't like white after 10...Qd3.
Thanks for the comments!
@LimpSpider, I can't move my knight because black is threathening Rd1#
@benedictus, I thought about it during the game but black can just play Bxh3
@GreedyPawnGrabber I kinda agree. I think the rook lift followed by d4 ended up good for me but I should have retreated the rook back after that (Re1) before trouble.
Stormstout what about doing h3 first before the windmill?
(Edit: or g3)
