I usually open seeks in live and wait, often playing against people my own strength, and every now and then, someone who is quite strong. I look forward to those games because they're usually learning opportunities. Anyway, i opened a seek and here's what followed...
Well played . And this is further proof as to why book openings are best. They stand the trial of time, and also why a person should not move a piece twice during the opening. And just for the record, "bullys" is supposed to be spelled *bullies*.
thx...stupid english degree
12. Bb6 wins the queen. 12.Nb6 (as played) is less powerful, i.e.: Rb8 13.Qd5 Nd6! 14.nxe5 nxe5 15.Qxe5+ Be7.
impressed with the flashy tactics at the end! I advise the next 1400 who tangles with you to beware...
ne5 was top class posionally black could of done better but you did everything right good game
Good eyes on the queen grab. I can't see things like this yet. Hopefully soon.
In addition to your 18th move, there were a couple of other crushes possible: 18 Nxc6+ Be7 19 Nc7+ Kf8 20 Rxd6 and 18 Nxf7 Kxf7 19 Nf4+.
Please refer to my comment concerning eyes and how mine aren't at this level:) Thx for the line though. I really like it, especially since it takes the piece he moved back to defend with. Tasty.
