    Black may well be in trouble, but 12 ...Qd6 does prevent the immediate mate as 13. Bb5 Kd8 and black's queen is defended by the bishop.

    yes, actually you're correct. I made this one a puzzle so that you will understand better what will happen to black if he plays on ;)

    Nicely illustrated there. Took me a couple of tries to get the right line. Learner turned teacher Smile

    That's a 3' fast-but-intense fight in a Rook endgame, decided by a simple pawn.
    Any comments on the endgame will be appreciated, as that's my weakest point.

    pauix: 55... Rc8+ is your move.

    55....      Rc8+

    56. K any Rxc5

    57. Kxc5  Kd2 and pawn queens, giving you a simple K & Q vs K ending.

    ok, I have not been playing longer blitz time, so I chose a 10 min game, and I got a really intimidating opponent, but I think he underestimated me, so he got careless, and lost a piece. I won the game slowly (cat and mouse style), making sure that there are no foolish blunders.

     

    as John Legend would say, "We don't know which way to go.. cuz we are ordinary people... Maybe we should take it slow, take it slow oh oh oh, this time we take it slow. Wink"

    6.Qa4 was surely waste of time.That's why he left his queen in a vulnerable square for 7 moves.He didn't want to waste more time moving her out of there.Laughing

    This game ended in a draw but I felt I could have recorded my highest blitz win yet. Looking for help on how to close him down at the end Tongue out

    This is an illustration of how spinfidelity could have won his game.

    @weaponking - nicely done. I could have also moved the king to c3, then c2 to take out his pawns (moving the bishop threatened).

    ok, so the next 2 games I am gonna give is from online chess, and believe me, this one is so hard to play. I had lots of time to analyze, but hard, because I have to think a lot. Not like bullet or 3 min blitz which I like to play for fun. My opponent is a strong Indo player, I think he's an expert, because he played so well :)

     

     

    So I played the 2nd game as black, and now I am determined to win !

     

    who would ever thought thinking 1 step further, which I didn't do in the last game, proved helpful !?

     

     

     

     

    I hope you enjoyed it ! C&F appreciated !

    And here is a game in which I lost pretty badly in the Scandinavian Qd6.

    Here's on of my first attempts at the French, knowing no theory on it. I recommend reading the variations, I think some are pretty neat.

    NacthWulf, it seems that 40...d4 also prevents checkmate.

    Two fresh games, a Bird and a Hippo.
