I want to know if I should have done something differently that would have enable me to win this game from this position. I really thought I had it, but then I run out of ideas.
How about 6. ... Ne5. It gets the knight out of harm's way, prevents perpetual check by the queen, prevents the rook from coming to d2, and gets the knight closer to the attack on the king.
6. ... Qd2 is another idea. But I think white still has a perpetual check 7. Qh5+ Kg7 8. Qg4+ Kh6 9. Qh4+
I think ChessDweeb intended 4. ... Qc5+ to keep the king from going to g1. Black is trying to win there!
And black is trying to win in the first suggestion I gave. The second suggestion white still draws, but I thought it was worth mentioning anyway.
I don't think this is ever a legal sequence of moves.
That was I think.
Sorry, my mistake.
I agree with ChessDwweb, 4...Qc5+ gives white many chances.
If 5. Ke1??, then 5...Qe3+. 6.Kf1 Rf8#.
If 5. Kf3??, then 5...Ne5 forks the king and queen.
if 5. Kg3??, then 5...Rg8 wins the queen.
If 5. Kf1??, then 5...Rf8+. If 6.Ke1, then 6...Qf2#. If 6.Ke2, then 6...Qf2+ 7.Kd3 Ne5 forks the king and queen.
This only leaves 5. Ke2 which gives black many options but no obvious next move.
I love this site. You guys are great. I will defently become a better chess player with the help of people like you.
Thank you again.
GamerRW your input is great. Thank you.
If 5. Ke2, then 5...Qe7+ looks promising.
If 6. Kd3 or 6. Kf3, then 6...Ne5 forks the king and queen.
If 6. Ke3, then 6...Re8+ eventually leads to white losing his rook and checkmate.
If 6. Kf1 or 6. Kf2, then 6....Rf8+ 7. Kg1 Rf6 and white has good chances.
yeh u should of won!! (sorry for posting so late but i accidently pressed the back button)
6... Ne5 7... Qe2 and hopefully Queen takes rook but if he does something, dont worry u could of done 8... Rf1+ his rook takes, ur queen takes CHECKMATE!!
What if white plays 7. Qb1
6. ... Ne5 7. Qb1 Nd3 threatening Nf2+. White can't take on d3 because of the back rank vulnerability. 6. ... Ne5 is very good as I indicated in my first post. There are some good moves earlier as others have pointed out.
