I believe with correct play after 21. Rhe1 black has good winning chances if white makes errors and okay drawing chances if he plays well. Can you help me recognize my errors? I think I'm looking at the analasys objectively but I might be in err
ok a few points,.. You need to focus on basic opening principles more. develop quickly, Dont trade pieces with out a good reason. I would also review basic tactical themes. What was the time control for the game?
1) go over some basic tactics for a few weeks. here or other places such as chess tactics server is good.
2) follow basic principles in the opening and through out the game. develop (improve the position of your pieces), control the center, keep your king safe.
3) DO NOT push or trade unless you have a clear idea how it benefits you.
4) send me $40.00 for coaching fees
15. Qe5 is a blunder. You should reply R(a)e8 and pin the queen to the king.
However, 14. ... Bf5 was also poor since Qxd5 wins a iece and protects the knight. Black might be able to play Re8 ch and get something started but black is a bunch down.
You mean White had a mate in 1 and abandoned the game?
Time control - 5 mins, was down to 10s during last moves
Maybe he did actually just lose connection lol. I guess this must happen some of the time.
Is there anyway to get rid of staalmate..? anoying!'
Computer Analysis says 1...c5 is an Inaccuracy ???
