    @jeffreyd600: how would you have won? I only see draws or advantage for white.

    I was quite surprised when white resigned this match, I thought it was fairly even. Engine says black does have a lead, though, albeit a slim one.

    No zugzwang, but black just picks up all the pawns from c2-a2, and have a winning advantage I think

    honestly in that one, White played very poorly and not as agressively as he should have. it is the kings gambit and he is supposed to fight for the advantage.

    my two questions are:

    1)could I have won this match any faster ?

    2)why did the opponent sacrifice his knight at the end of the game ? he could have atleast managed to save the time by moving it to the legal square.

    and, please provide a brief report of the match.

    Yes you will probably have won much easier and quicker if your opening ideas based on chess princebless. You develop pieces with out see how you can grab space...you need to understand that when your opponent plays passive you push pawns and pieces behind. Your 2...Be6 is wrong, e5 is your move. Qd6 and 0-0-0 are also terrible. Try to change the way you think about chess.

    By the way I am black in this game.

    Well, I know that I had a great advantage over my opponent by the time I put his queen out of the game and confined his rook in the corner. However, my opponent managed to get the rook our towards the end of the game. I am pretty sure that I made some mistakes in regards to allowing that to happen, but I am not sure what mistakes I made. Was there faster way for me to win this game? If so, how?

    Thanks for your opinion but, I personally think developing my pieces are my major priority. I personally don't think opening matters much anyway.

     Every move matters! You are not playing alone to think only your pieces, you must understand and spot weaknesses from the early moves. You asked if you could win your game easier and faster : With the way you thinking...no is my answer.

    I challenge you to a match , what's the reply ?

    let's see whether you can prove that openings are Important. personally, I don't care about my opening play much. my idea is to develop my pieces as safe as possible in a short amount of moves.

    Look Ssakash , I didn't answer your post to prove anything, only to help you understand. If you want to prove that you are thinking well about chess challenge someone else.

    no, that's not the reason. you underestimated my thinking prowess. I want to show my full potential to you. I just had a look, your blitz rating is 1895 so, I think you will be more than worth my opponent. so, it's your call whether you are up for a match or not.

    Question: What do the numbers (e.g., -1.81) refer to that are posted after each move in games that I have the computer analyze? I recognize that blunders have larger negative scores, but many of the "agreed" upon moves are low or negative point values.

    0 means equal game(+/- 0.25 wouldnt matter much). +ve means white's advantage. generally +1 could be attributed to one pawn advantage. But in diff situations/positions its meaning may differ. below 1 means white has a slight advantage. above 2 means white should have winning advantage. same goes for black for -ve pts.



    In my opinion ur opening wasnt too bad, just average. For one, it wasnt a famous named opening, which was probably why ur opponent played a very dubious one. generally opening wouldnt matter if u can avoid blunders in middlegame when u r under pressure(assuming ur opponent plays a better one).

    Having said that since every opponent isnt the same(and familiar with diff openings/positions), so u will meet somebody who can pick on ur slight mistakes and make position very unpleasant for you. for example - e4 openings are very sharp early on and it may prove to be a blunder to play Nc6 instead of Nf6. similarly d4 openings, though slower, will sting you once u hv played about 10-15 moves. u wouldnt even know exactly where u went wrong(if u are only concentrating on piece development - without any order).

    So, Even though it may not matter most of the times(at our lvl), other than piece development, openings have two more aspects - order of piece development and tempi/tempo.

    Thanks Xwarriour. I'll look over my computer analyses now with a new eye.
