    Hello guys!

    Except from my bad, bad blunder on 20., do you have any suggestions?

    I have annotated some moves with questions.

    I think you played well in the opening. I didnt like 8.Qd5 at first, but your position looks so strong at this point I think it is justified. If Ne7 for instance the d6 pawn is hanging, so its not too easy for black to complete developement. Qd5 is to me an atypical move, and would not been the first move I would have looked at, in a blitz game I would have just played Nc3 without much thought.

    Move 9. you can play Nxd6+ instead, Its much better to avoid the exhanges and allowing black too much activity. Lucky for you black goes pawn hunting instead of improving his position.

    Move 17. Your completely winning, I dont think Nxd6 is an improvement unless there is mate. Bxd6 is simplest and winning comfortably.

    Thanks for your comments, Timmy!

    In my annotation for move 9. it should have said Nxd6+; instead I wrote the move that I actually performed :) Do I understand you right that you think Nxd6+ is better, because an exchange is avoided?

    Nxd6 appears to win on the spot, unless I've missed something.

    You keep his king in the center, you prevent him from coordinating and you prevent him from getting active pieces and freeing himself. That is the main thing, not winning material.
