Hey guys. I'm posting a recent game I played in which I was black, and trying to stay in the spirit of the stonewall defense. I know there are several obvious mistakes, so feel free to comment on those as well.
I offered a draw at the start of the endgame, but my opponent declined. I can't blame him since he had more pieces, but the game just felt drawish to me, and I don't even consider myself a good player, so to assume that, and then accomplishing it, left me somewhat satisfied, yet curious if there was ever a point that I could have equalized or achieved an advantage.
I do realize as well that my opponent screwed up the endgame by not playing 61.Kf4
Instead of 64.Nxh4 white can play simply 64.Ke4 and the only thing you can do is resign.
9...Qb6 looks winning for Black.
23...Qxd4 is very hard to understand. What did make you think that leaving your bishop en prise can be good? Of course what he played is enough for a win, but 23.Qe6+ wins a whole rook.
25.Bh5+ is mate next move.
And so on... huge mistakes by both from start to finish.
im not a chess champ i just en joy the game ,but what you did took a lot of gut s. I would have lost that game, you turned it into a victore by not loseing i say GOOD JOB........
