    I think this is my first win against a 2000+ player. Nothing fancy, more of a positional game. The time control was 30 0, but when the game was over we each still had over 25 minutes left on our clock

    11...c5 is really bad. You just made your d-pawn backward for no reason.

    12...Re8 13.Rfd1 loses a pawn. Maybe you could try 12...Be6.

    26...Rb3 27.Rd1 f5 looks a little safer. Now White can't mess with e6. I'm not so great with endgames.

    38.g3 looks like game over for white.

    Why wouldn't Rh3 instead of g3 on move 38 be checkmate?

    Well played. This was a 2000+ blitz player? They made a number of fairly serious bad moves, seemingly willingly giving themselves weaknesses without much provocation.

     

    30...f5 screams out for 31. Re6+ followed by gxf5, and the d6 pawn can't be protected either. I don't think ...Rxb2+ Kg3 and pushing the pawn wins for black (since white can get behind the pawn in time and push his own passers), but I guess that must have been what put him off the idea.

    gg, CS007, but I couldn't figure out one thing - if the time control was 30/0, and you say that when the game was over, both of you had 25 minutes left on the clock... so, I mean why both of you played so fast? Anyway, nice game. Smile

    I'm not sure why he played fast. A lot of the moves were instinct for me, and I naturally play fast, although thats a bad habit I need to break. thanks for commenting! :)
