Welcome to the long-awaited twentieth installment of My Shortest Wins! I will be moving on to interesting blitz games, it's mostly just random.
I couldn't post because I was at a chess tournament! To see the games, click this link: http://www.chess.com/forum/view/game-showcase/my-chess-tournament
By the way, Happy New Year! Hopefully this year will be better than the last!
Today's game is a fun win against a 1900 in blitz who was greedy for the rook on h8.
isn't 10.d3 just winning for white?
hmm..I guess so.
12.Qxe3+ doesn't win for white, although it is probably the best move: 12.Qxe3+ Qxe3 13.dxe3 cxb3+ 14.Kf2 b2 15.Bxb2 f6 ∓
I would just go 12.dxe3
Bxd3+ is a blunder. You have no compensation for this sacrifice. I like simple moves, so I would go with Qxe1+.
I am not sure, that white wins after 10: Pd3.
Variations like Qf4+ 11: Nf3 Pf6 12: Bxh8 Pd4 comes in mind.
And then for example 13: Qe2 0-0-0 14: Pg3 Qh6 15: Kg2 Ne7 don't win easy
or 13 Qa5 Bb7 14 Bxh8 0-0-0 don´t win easy
