    Hello,

    As I've said before, in an effort to improve my understanding of chess, I've decided to post a few of my games here for community analysis. This game is a little lazy on my part, since my opening strategy was dubious. However, inaccurate play by my opponent eventually led to victory for me. Please help me :)

    Rather than 27. Rxa6 (letting his Bishop out), I would have preferred Rd1 intending Rdd7. Then centralize your King.

    Black has played such inaccuracy on opening such as the move ...c6 which blocks the scope of bishop and also does ignore the principle of development on opening. It played ...d6, ...c6, ...e6 too many pawn moves that the most logical continuation is to castle, put rooks on center, and later attack the center.

    White's material advantage does converted in to win.

    You should not exchange off queens when you have a space (and central)

    advantage. You should be attacking.

    Yes, attacker side must ignore exchange because the attack will reduce it's efficiency and sometimes can fail

    That makes sense. Thanks for the advice.

    There are several important exceptions to that "Don't exchange while attacking" rule...

    If you are up in material, exchanging pieces might lead to a more certain win than continuing your attack.

    If most of the opponent's defensive resources rely on one specific piece (eg: his Queen), then an exchange might suddenly leave him helpless against the remaining attackers.

    Thanks. I suppose I should judge whether or not the position calls for it. Thanks guys for all the help so far!

    Your opponent is a beginner I think.... this game looks really full of mistakes especially with your opponent...

    I don't think someone rated 1100 has the right to speak of "beginners" Undecided
