played a blitz game today and had a little trouble analyzing the game and finding better alternative moves. I did my best though. Please take a look.
looking at it again now. Rd4 is a blunder because I lose the rook after Bc5. I have no idea what move I should've played on move 21.
I don't see a good reason to analyze 1 minute games most moves are made on auto pilot. Try playing a few 30 min or more , live games take your time to look for better moves and after the game analyze it
An interesting try is to trade the bad bishop at a2 by 21. Bxc4!?. If 21. ... dxc4? then 22. Rxd6!. If 21. ...Bxf4 then 22. e7 forking queen and rook. 21. ...Qc7 23. exf8 Kxf8 24. Rxf4 white should be fine I guess.
this was a 5 minute game tom. still a blitz game but not that short of time.
I missed those moves. thanks risk.
IF you miss those moves during even a 15 minute contest than we have something to discuss, commenting on poorly played 5 minute blitz games is waste of time.
post the game here http://www.chess.com/forum/view/game-analysis/we-need-more-amateurs-to-post-their-annotated-games
Every player has a level of strength, my good move could be bad for you, and it is also possible that your good move could be a bad move by another player higher than you.
20. Ba2? (Bxc4!)His pawn is still pinned to the queen which you mentioned earlier mate.
I don't think the game was poorly played. especially for a player at my beginner level. I am trying to analyze as many games as I can. I asked for some help in analyzing the game not a sarcastic remark mateologist. I am sure you're a stronger player than I am. But you too were at my level at some point. Personally I don't think analyzing games is a waste of time. If you don't have anything to offer then just don't post.
Yes I see it. The TS is looking for alternative move on move 21. ....
True. yet another move i missed analyzing the game. which is why I need to analyze more games. Thanks again guys.
9.Qd3 is better than your mentioned Qd1 (and both are better than Qd2).
14.e5 ? does not give Black a bad bishop, as he can always open the diagonal with ...d4. A bishop is bad if he's behind his own blocked pawns. Instead, exd5 wins at least temporarily a pawn because if Black takes back on d4, the Be7 will be unguarded after the black queen takes (White trades the two minor pieces). Even without that tactical point, exd5 is better as after this Black dominates White's minor pieces with his pawns.
14.f5 ? makes White's pawns very weak and hard to defend. 14.Nxe4 would have given Black a weak pawn and eased White's position in the center (15.f5 would have been an option, but it's better to trade the knights on e4)
16.bxc3 ? should have been punished by 15...c4 and White's light squared bishop is imprisoned forever. Thus 15.Qxc3 is better.
17.e6 is positionally good, but here you might want to look a the tactic : 17.exf6 and if 17...Bxf6 ? 18.Qe6+ forks the bishop ; yet, 17...Rxf6 seems ok.
As already mentioned by someone else, 20.Bxc4 was the only way to keep that bishop in the game. Black's bishop is bad, but White's is nonexisting after that. For that move, it wasn't too late at moves 21 and 22.
28.Rd3 wins the bishop on the spot, instead of a mysterious king attack that could be parried easily ; however White is clearly winning here.
Yeah i was at your level and my games were garbage just like yours, But take some time and play longer time controls so we know where you are at in your chess developement, that is where improvement begins when you have time to analyze a position but cannot seem to find the right path that is where the learning process in chess begins !
Once again, thanks for nothing, and pointing out the obvious. I'll do just fine without your belittling advice. Thanks to everyone else for helping me.
OK patzer have it your way your just a small pebble in a big pond who cares !!
"Please be relevant, helpful & nice!"
my point exactly xAnsl. keep your arrogance to yourself.
Some people post games and don't like what they hear and get all offended, i have posted many times and helped plenty of people if you don't want someones honest opionion then post your game on facebook among your buddies problem solved !
