Ok, you've all been waiting for this!
This game is a rather easy win against a lower rated player. Not much analysis to do here, but still fun as always!
In case you're a newcomer:
I do this every 10 online chess games that pass as well as every 10 live standard games that pass.

I was finally black in this game. This was part of my own created tournament the Albin Counter Gambit tournament, basically a race attack position.
Ok, onto the game:
Oh yeah, the usernames: loganchan-cellor (1393) vs. Me (1731).
Lessons learned from this game:
1) This is a race position, you MUST ATTACK to have winning chances, not defend like a sissy.
2) If you do not attack, you lose! Or if you waste too much time (moves like Bh4, etc.) you will lose.
3) Don't focus on unimportant things when you play a race position. Just attack the king! For example, my opponent focused on the thorn of a d-pawn.
4) Knowing the features of a position helps. If you know white's and black's typical plan you can follow it as the most effective method. White has already created a weakness with the fianchetto, black has no weaknesses on the kingside but to compensate white's bishop is nicely placed on the diagonal.
Wow, it's surprising no one commented or provided any feed back on my post.
Pope Benedict XV1 may not have seen it yet...
Lol what do you mean by that?
Apologies, it was a silly reference to your flag.
Remember to stay tuned for Game Analysis #7!
16. Qf3 threatening both 17. Qxf5+ and 17. Qxb7+ instead of 16. Qb1?! allows white to attack first I believe.
Oddly, it seems to have been overlooked in the analysis, and instead insists that white's attack is slower. :P
You're right, which makes Black's preceding move, 15...Rxh4 a bad one.
15...c6 would have been sensible.
@dacster13 Hmm....I think black's king can run .
hmm, I'm not quite sure about that if you allow 17. Qxb7+ white can play 18. Qb5+ next, king can't go to the e-file because of Re1 possibilities, and if Kc8 Bb7+ and white mates by force I believe.
OOPS. lol have to watch out for that,
Holy cripes, I hope to heck I'm not the tenth game. You'll have a field day with mine and I take enough of a beating from the computer analysis which seems to criticize every move I make (I'm a beginner and slow as molasses in picking it up).
lol don't be so pessimistic.
Always bring up more new force.
Also, move 21 black, play Qg4 mate.
thanks! didn't see that mate.
lol don't be so pessimistic.
I'm sorry to say, it's not pessimistic, it's REALISTIC. Someone with my rating is certainly not expected to win against someone with your rating! That said, losing in that case is not necessarily a bad thing. If I stay focused and try the absolute hardest I can, then it's a victory and I generally learn something. My game on thanksgiving was a prime example. I lost but I knew deep down I played as hard as I could with the knowledge I had. I was exhilarated after than game despite the loss. Best thing, I had fun in that game.
lol just practice and don't be too hard on yourself.
Also I do this for every ONLINE chess game (every 1 out of 10).
A Cris Angelism (that I got from the real Criss Angel): "Practice, practice, practice". He also says, "negativity never breeds anything positive" and I need to bear that in mind more often!
