on that last one I saw one oprotunity to win a minor
just a point I saw
Thanks, yeah, 14...Nb4 was because I saw the fork opportunity on the Q and R. Turns out it was a major blunder because I didn't even see the Bishop at d2. I find a lot of the mistakes I make are because I "miss" something that seems so obvious later. Same thing happens to me in the tactics trainer - I'm so focused on that bank rank check, that I miss the obvious mate from the bishop on a long diagonal.
Here is a recent Draw I had, very good for me, confidence wise, also it provided a way for me to look at how I evaluated things strategically
does anyone have differing opinions
You played much higher than your rating!
Despite your opponent made your life way easier, it was a good game. Btw, 25. Nc7#.
This happens quite a lot in Blitz. You normally miss a mate in 1 because you are ofuscated with your plan and have only a few seconds left, and you start premoving to avoid loosing time.
Well, I'm back, with a new game. I screwed up in the beginning, but by playing a queen's gambit accepted line, I was able to develop more quickly, and overcome an early loss of a bishop .
right, I missed that, I was just mainly focused on an attack on the 1 file, oops.
Alright, here's a game I just played, I'll post a little puzzle after showing why he lost his queen.
He lost his queen here, show the only move that he can make without losing his queen, and then show the move that'll still take it.
I liked this game a lot. I played Black.
well generally with 3 Bb5+ you want to play Bd7 and get the Light squared Bishops off, but you played well
Bb5 in the Sicilian is actually a bookline; I actually made a group for it. White's bishop capture seemed a bit premature, and indeed, white let you take the center. 9. g4 was a blunder, since you had not castled yet. 14. Kg3 would have given white fighting chances, but the move played was suicidal. Your kingside assault played out pretty nicely, although the queen should have stayed on h3. (If the knight ever moved, Qxh1 would be winning.) Something along the lines of 16. ...Ba6 would be a reasonable continuation, with a queenside castle and a c4 push soon to follow. 22. dxc4 put up no resistance at all.
On the whole, a well-played game by black. Nice win!
These are two otb tournament games that i recently played. Can anyone help me analyze them?
Not posted for a while and thought this game had some good points. I've not played much live chess recently as I've been focusing more on online so hopefully this has helped me improve.
@ new-at-chess - 1st game - 5... qxd4 was obviously a terrible move - you could have mated him much quicker than you did but you got the job done in the end
interesting position ,were u came out on top, what more can a person say..
