Hi everyone. I just played a 5 minute blitz game, and I would appreciate any comments on how I could improve my game. I know right now I am horrible and i blundered so badly in the first half of the game, then I lost on time. :( I was playing as black.
Any analysis would be appreciated. Thanks!
I know, I played horribly.
Train tactics;) You lose to many pieces to simple combinations. Your lost from move 2.
2..Nc6 or d6 is best.
3... Qe7 is better, atleast you can lock his queen away for a few moves and you got counter threats on the e-file.
6....d5 would be better gaining alot more space in the center.
7...Qd7 is a bad move, because your preventing your bishop from coming out, Be6 is better.
8...Qg4?? Why would you want to trade queens anyway, your down a rook you need to keep the queens on the board, and keep the position complex 8...Ne5 forks the queen and bishop at the same time protecting f7: Train tactics.
14...Kxc6?? Qxg1+ Ke2 Nxc6, you gained a piece.
Just train tactics when you want to play a blitz game.
Okay. Thanks for the help.
Really seriously you analysed the game that was played with short time control? (blitz, bullet chess)
Not sure why your opponent allowed so much counterplay.
11. Qf3 followed by Ne2 and 0-0 and he wins easily.
Oh, I'm rated about 940. my opponent was rated around 1000.
Pretty sad, i know.
Is the Caro-Kann the opening I was searching for or should I go for 1...e5 ?
