This was a live game(5min) I played today. It was my third game against the opponent(lost the previous two). I was a bit tired and decided to play for fun and try out the opening that I used( a very bad one IMO). About move 53 I had like 30 secs on my clock and my opponent had 40 or so and I thought of offering a draw but refused to do so since my opponent was spending too much time thinking his or her moves giving me the time advantage. I saw 60. QxRe6 + drawing but like I said i was winning on time so just kept playing.
Btw I won on time, but the possition is a draw.
That position isn't drawn; it's a win for white. Just play it properly and boom, there's the W.
One more thing; try never again to use that opening lol. I'm sure most people on here would be hoping for an opponent to use it on them, it'd be pretty easy to decimate.
what the hammershlag is a great opening
It is a win for White, but it is very complicated. The theme is drive the Black king and rook to the edge of the board where they must seperate due to zugzwang. Wherever the rook moves, there's a different technique for winning. I know I probably couldn't find it OTB.
after 28... Rh2 black should have played Rg3
The endgame after Black's 52nd move is however a draw (at least, according to Reuben Fine).
It's a win for white according to tablebases.
Also, where you trying to lose with that opening?? You're opponent had to make so many tactical blunders for you to just get equality it was ridiculous.
Yeah I expected to lose that game. maybe my opponent didn't expect it and didn't know how to attack well.
