Discovered an old gem

    I've been out of tournament play for a few years now, but thinking about getting back in. Tonight I dug out my old score books to reminisce, and came across the game below. When I played this game, I was unrated, playing against an 1136. I had been playing online for less than a year, and wasn't rated more than 1200 or 1300. And I must say, I'm pretty proud of this game!

    The ideal goal of chess is to force checkmate position.
    Referring to the game that you have posted above, I assume that you have missed a golden opportunity. Actually, you can win the game by checkmate. Obviously, checkmate victory will make you more proud than the pride that you mean. Checkmate position will be realized, if you move as follows:
    27.Bg5+ Kf8
    28.Bh6+ Rg7
    29.Bxg7+ Kg8
    30.Nh6# (mate)

    Observe my simulation, below:

    Yes, I found that in computer analysis a little while ago, too. There were also some clearly terrible moves, like leaving my h4 knight hanging with 19. Qf5 and the terrible 11. e3.

    I don't use a computer to analyze the game. I only use the methods of logical thinking. If you've free time, you can visit my forum. I have posted a few games including a game that I think is good. Checkout:
