Hey I wanted my game to be analysed but It's hard if let it do by a computer the variations don't say much for me. I only want some openingflaws i made and tactical misser i had.
Is there someone who wanted to analise it for me
11...Ke5 would probably be the better move in that situation, as it protects him more and defends from the d6 discovered attack.
yes indeed didn't want my king in the middle but was bad idea
not looking too deeply,but 7.....0-0 looks better, gets the king out the way,lets the kings rook see some sunlight
2.Bc4 is violating an opening principle of Knights before Bishops. Without knowing how Black is going to develop you don't know whether the B belongs on e2, d3, c4, b5, or whether it needs to be fianchettoed after g3,Bg2. Also, the B is subject to being attacked causing you to have to move it losing tempii. After 2...e6 which is better than d6?! because it has the B on c4 biting on granite and Black is threatening ...d5 causing you to move the B again and if there is the exchange exd5 exd5 B(moves) Black has established a central head duo with pawns at c5,d5.
Once the Balck Knights are developed the B is subject to being captured in an exchange of B for N giving Black the minor exchange and the attacking advantage of the B pair.
aaah i'm putting in the variations you told me thanks
Bc4, although not book, isnt altogether bad
All moves in chess have advantages and disadvantages. 2.Bc4 in this game has more disadvantages than advantages that a strong player can exploit.
While Knights before Bishops is a general rule, the only way to truly master chess is to understand that while there are certain principles to follow, they are not written in stone and are very flexible. The most important concept in chess is "It depends on the position"
You are right, but in this position 2.Bc4 is NOT an exception to following the principles.
Am I being really thick here? After Rf3 doesn't the simple Qxf3 just win?
Not thick at all. Rf3 was a game-losing blunder, or should have been!
I can hardly find a rational move played in that game.
- 7.Ng5 - did Black know the castling rule, or he had not attended lesson # 2?
- 9.Nxf7? is simply stupid: White is clearly better after the simple 9.ed5.
- 11...Kg8? is another stupid move: Black can simply play 11...Bf6 and white does not have enough for the piece he has blund... eeer, I mean sacrificed.
- 13. de7? is another lemon: white wins after 13.Qd5+.
- 18.b4? needs Houdini 6.02 and a 64-core supercomputer to find out how white is winning after 18...cb4.
23.Rf3 is a move from the future. I guess white had something devilish in mind if Black took the rook, but I'm not sure what exactly. And obviously 23.Kh2 which looks easily winning for white must be wrong, for some odd reason.
pfren is not the guy you want for "kind analysis". He is kinda blunt but he is a strong player
I laughed after 'move from the future'.
Yeah castling was really neccecary.
I'm just playing for a couple of months now. so there's lot to be learned. Blunt or not ;) . Thanks or all the replies.
