this is a game where i felt i had the edge the entire game but couldn't convert to a win (ended up drawing) any advice on the game??? i was white
Perhaps taking the hanging knight on move 26 or 27....or am i missing something?
ah yes i missed that hanging knight! silly me! thanks for all that advice sapientdust i appreciate that it's been really helpful
i didnt get deep in position but i dont really believe 46. Qxh6+ throws away win. maybe it deserves ?! since it reduces material to a point that draw becomes inevitable.46.Qh3! is better hoping for 46...Qh3? but black can simply play 46...Kg8.with queens on the board maybe some trickery can still works and at the right moment white can exchange queens and enter a won pawn endgame but anyway since white has doubled pawns so they cant protect king against checks and i think by accurate play black must hold.anyway such queen endgames are always so close to a draw since both sides have good chances of giving perpetual check.

He having knight was screaming to be killed off. And you right, the endgame is a dead draw.
yeah i did make a lot of silly moves in this game haha
move 19. Ne7 is uneccessary. You are trading a very strong N for a very trapped and terribky weak B
An idea that looks good there is 19 e5 (19... fe 20 Bxe5).
12.Bxc5 (12...dxc5 13.Bf7+)
wow i did have a lot of good moves i didn't play huh :)
sapiendust: brilliant analysis. i learned a lot just going through the game and reading your comments.
