I played game. 15 minutes. There was sacrifice.
So, the question is, was sacrifice a good move? (even if not sound move, it could be best move in the situation) Was it sound? What would be best way to play after it for Black and for White?Please, help me improve my game.
If you won, then yes!
Could you give me line with h6? I was afraid of getting my Bishop burried alive. What would I get instead after h6 to my advantage - would it be e5 square for my kNight?
Well, after h6 and an eventual f5 white looks pretty passive (like totally passive to me) and black will have queenside ideas and the e4 pawn is a target. So it seems to me the very best white can hope for is a draw... and black's dark square bishop is as active as any two white minor pieces put together haha... in other words don't the light square bishop bother you too much, collectively white's minors are worse off heh.
No, the sac wasn't correct.
Perhaps you missed that after 1...h6 2.Bh4 Nxd5 just wins a pawn. 2.f5 hxg5 (but not 2...Bh7 3.Bf4) 3.fxg6 fxg6 may look strange but I think that the square e5 gives you a good game.
White played very well until he mixed up the move order: instead of 11.Rf1??, intending 12.Ne6+, 11.Ne6+!, intending 12.Rf1+ wins at once.
What about 1. ... h6 2. Bxf6 Bxf6 3. f5 Bh7. My Bishop on h7 is only aiming on f5. I can take e5 square and attack on Queen's wing, but I can not see... wait, like paulgottlieb said earlier ...b4 is tightening White possition. There can be good game, but I must analyse it more.
After 3.f5 Bh7 white is totally lost- his black squares are simply nonexistent, and his counterplay is also next to nonexistent.
In face to face game there is thrill and emotion are flowing far more than in game through computer. One can slip more easily.
Thank you. This points h6 was good move.
Sacrifice on d5 was move that loose game or draw game? How much bad move it was?
19...g6 is better, trapping the bishop at h7. 10...Re7 11.Ne6+! and White is winning. for example: 11...fxe6 12.Rf1+ Ke8 13.Qc8++
I think White just underestimate the position and don't calculate precisely when he has the advantage. :)

Is the Caro-Kann the opening I was searching for or should I go for 1...e5 ?
