This is one of my favorite game where I was one piece ( Knight ) down but pawn up. I thought I lost the game but I kept on playing and won. Opponent was good enough to appreciate which is rare on internet. He was tough. I am not posting entire game. I am giving position where I took major step to exchange rook and game was B+K vs B. Please discuss if anything went wrong from both sides.
I think the clearest win for white is:
7.Bxd7 Kxd7 8.g5! Ke7 9.gxh6 Kf8 10.hxg6 fxg6 11.Nxd6 a4 12.Ne4
At first glance it looks like 3. Bb5 is good for White. If Black exchanges Bishops then Nc4 by White keeps the Black King out of the queenside and I think White should win easily. Otherwise 4. Nb3 is winning a pawn and that puts paid to any Black threats as far as I can tell.
After 5.Nb3 black loses another pawn , black is dead lost because white can sac the extra piece at any point to obtain a decisive pawn advance !
@ siletiarius - I agree I was hoping opponent would miss that and he did and I took advantage.
@Gil-Gandel - Opponent offered me exchange and I knew I would have lost if I accept offer.
Ng3 ???? How ? If you mean Nb3 yes I would have lost one pawn but there were some moves for me even after losing one pawn. Also in blitz it's not easy to see weak piece easily.
so lucky :)
Good job you were able to revive this eight-month-old thread to tell us so.
