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
pauix: 55... Rc8+ is your move.
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.
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.
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
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).
"Next time Gadget, next time"
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 !?
Fresh Modern Defense game.
@weaponking : nice game ! lots of hanging pawns, but you made it through the complications !
the rematch :
I hope you all (the C.c Comunity) can help me analyse this game, all I know is my last move lost the game
Two more Hippos (blitz games).
Here's my highest rated win:
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.
I completely missed that. Thanks for pointing it out.
Studying openings is highly UNDERrated!
