I played a Modern Defense game with black a few hours ago. My opponent was good, but at the end he made some mistakes that cost him the game. Anyway, it was fun to play
Here's the game:
That was a crazy game. Once you got your attack going it really was exciting!
16. ... Ne4 17. Ne4 Nb4 18. cb Be4 19. Qe4 Bf6 gives you a nice positional advantage.
19. ... f5 looks crushing, winning a piece.
What did you intend to do after 20. Bf3, threatening 21. Nf6?
After 19. ... Qd4 20. Rad1 Qe5 21. f4 the queen is trapped! Nice!
29. ... Rf3 looks better. If 30. gf Bf3# and if 30. Re2 Qf1+ 31. Rf1 Rf1#
Thank you both for your comments!
16. ... Ne4 17. Ne4 Nb4 18. cb Be4 19. Qe4 Bf6 is really very good. I haven't seen it
If white had played 20. Bf3: 20... Qd7, then if 21. Ng5, then 21... Bxf3 22. Nxf3 c5 23. dxc5 bxc5 with plans of ... c6, ... Nb4, exploiting white's b4 hole if appropriate:
After that, I would probably have tried to use my pawn advantage on the kingside or play defensively, depending on my opponent's play.
29. ... Rf3 30. Rg1 could be troublesome, for example the following:
With 29... Bxf3 30. Rg1 it is immediately possible to play 30... e1=Q, then 31. Qxe1 Bxg2+ 32. Rxg2 Rxe1+ 33. Rxe1 Qxe1+:
I really liked this game.It was a true mayhem.
After 29. ... Rf3 30. Rg1 Rh3 wins immediately. The threat is 31. ... Rh2+ 32. Kh2 Qh4#.
I think, after 29. ... Rf3, White has to play 30. Qe2 but then you trade queens and remain two pieces ahead.
unusually high quality game from both sides considering ratings.
