    not a bad end position xD

     

    some thoughts:  dont' give up bishops so easily - unless it strengthens your center, bishops are awesome in endgames.

    13. ... Qd7 allows 14. Nxe5! so 13... dxe4 was best.

    not bad though. keep playing otb!

    After 47...c2, White should have gone after Black's K with Q and R and could have ended the game shortly after.  For example, after 47...c2 mate in 4 was possible.

    As I'm sure you have reflected, the game is a lot more difficult and fraught/exciting  OTB than sat in the comfort of your lounge with all the modern trappings i.e. books/articles/database etc.

    When's your next outing?

    lol it's the simple replies that often escape us. (ex, my tourney game from last tuesday that i haven't had time to analyze yet, but lost because of a hasty blunder)
