This is a 30/G game I played on Playchess. I played as black. I am proud of the combination I had starting with 23. ...Rxf3+. I would appreciate any advice or comments. I will try to post more of my games here in the future.
I note that 25...Bc1 amongst other bishop moves leads to a quick mate. 10.Bf4 is a ?? type idea. Not sure how that move can be justified by someone, perhaps just an oversight?
25...Qf2 is mate right?
I played this game on FICS today. At first my thoughts were that my opponent's pawn pushes were unwise and if I could continue development, I'd survive. I felt at about move 12 or so that I was safely ahead, better in development and I liked my position. I thought 16 ...Qg3 was a particularly good move, and I really should have been able to capitalize. Instead I allowed queens to be exchanged. Certainly, the game did not end the way I had hoped!
Please give me any criticism. I felt like I made some interesting moves, but I did not get the results I wanted. I have not played a ton of games at FICS (or anywhere) so my rating may not be entirely accurate. I have a chess tempo rating of about 1550 at the moment, i have spent more time there than anywhere. I really like fics and I have a nice app for it on my phone, so I plan on playing quite a bit in the future. Thanks in advance!
Move 6 play Bxf2+ then you have a much better [winning] game
Wow, that is a good one, thanks!
I'm really getting into online chess these days. I've been studying tactics for the past five years or so and attended a few OTB tournaments. But for some reason, I couldn't bring myself to play online. Recently, I've started studying endgames and I've been playing at FICS and I just love it.
