black should have tried to exchange pieces right away because she was already material ahead basic strategy, instead she got greedy for a pawn. 27...bd7 would have been a way to acomplish it!
On move 30 black could still manage a counter play by 30...rxd3 followed by Bc4 or depends on the queens response attack whites king instead by rook checks and gwt blacks queen into the action. But, you got a break this time.
And nice mating idea
Why did black play 31... h6? Black should be fine after simply 31...Rxd3. White has no real way to mate.
I was threatening 32 Qxg7+ Rxg7 33 Rf8+ Rg8 34 Rxg8#. She played h6 to give her King a bit of space so that the Queen sac on g7 wouldn't work.
1: Nh5 instead of Ne6 would have drawn.
2:Qa8 after h6 qg6 is absolutely crushing
3:Rxd3 after Rf7 is pretty good.
4: Rxd3 savs the game after Qg6
I'm not trying to be harsh, just pointing out the facts. Great game, too. You should also see this:
(I was white)
Take another look at your #2. After 31 ... h6 32 Qg6 Qa8 33 Bf5 I don't see a way for Black to stop the mate on h7. But overall I agree -- Black had many ways to win.
Nice one! I suppose Black deserved to have that happen for shutting all her pieces off over on the side like that.
It does look to me like Black would escape--barely--with 32... Rxd3, since if 33 Rxg7 there's 33... Rxg3+. And on 33 Bf5 Rd1+ seems to salvage a draw.
You are Awonder Liang? I don't believe it, since 1500 players here beat you.
