    Okay. I played this 960 game a while back. I just started playing it. so my rating is provisional and probably lower than it should be.

    But my oppenent was so impressed with the game that he awarded me a trophy for 'strikingly strong play'.

    So my questions are:

    Was my play up to the piece-sacrifice okay?

    Was the piece-sacrifice correct. And could I have played better just after?

    And last. Could I have won the endgame we arrived at?

    In short. Did I deserve the trophy? Or did my oponent just see a lowrated player play well? :P


    P.S. I have to show the game in three stages because I couldn't castle 960 style in the analyzer.

    Hmm. the boards are not showing? can anyone help?

    Edit: Hmm. As long as I can't make them show properly you can just copy the brackets and paste them in a reply. While you are still in the editor you should be able to see my anotations.. but it must be posible to make it show properly? How do I do that?

    edit2: found it :)

    Well. I am asking if I could have won :P so I sort of already implied that I didn't win ;)

    yep .. correct. :-P

     

    Gave a quick look but honestly i dont feel good enough to tell you if you could win, but i see why he wanted to award you the trophey. At some point he had huge matherial advantage ( a lot of pawn more and just 1 rock each), but in the endgame you came to equality. Thats a good achievement imho.

    Ah.. I don't recocnize your scenario? I played black.. and I was trying to win the rook-endgame a pawn up.

    Before that I was behind by a piece for a pawn, since I sacked a knight to liberate my posistion.

    ops.. sorry! you was black.

    Im probably a worse player than you but honestly looking at the position after move 36 i would have said that the match was won by black.

     

    that said, find a way to win its not easy and if you dindt made it then for sure i wouldn't too.

    Mmm. I thought I was winning too. Which is why I would like to see some strong advice on how to improve my play in that endgame.

    Demidjinn, your opponent gave you a trophy so he (or she) obviously thought you deserved it.  I'd say that's what matters.

    Good for you. Others are sore lossers.

    Well.. he didn't loose. That's one of the points.

    Is there nobody that would like to look at that endgame and comment on what other plans might, or might not, have led to a win? :) that's actually the main reason I am even posting here.

    I would also, actually, like to know how a stronger player would rate the game (hence the title). Get some feedback. To improve. That's the point.

    *sigh*

    It matters to me if I actually did or didn't play a strong game.

    Look people.. If you don't have constructive analysis' and/or comments then please don't post. I am not trying to show of here. I am trying to get an evaluation of my game. With constructive critique.
