Wow, one long tactic.
Yeah... I missed 14. Be3, though, which would have won a lot more quickly.
The other Knight-move has interesting tactics in it, too.
8. ... Ng4 9. Bb5+ Nc6 (not 9. ... Kf8 10. Ne6+ winning the Queen) 10. Nxc6 Qxd1+ 11. Kxd1! (not 11. Nxd1 a6! 12. Ba4 Bd7! winning back the piece) Nf2+ 12. Ke2 Nxh1... and then you just ignore the hanging piece on c6 and the Knight on h1 (trapped anyway) and play 13. Bf4! consolidating the center.
Oh, if the Nf5 fork then Re1+ gets out of it.
Thanks waffle. I was thinking after Rxe3, than Nf3. But, Qf8 would spoil that...iwass thinking after Queen moved Rd8 would be mate:-)
I meant Nf5. You are right. That is a big reason I lose so much...I am blind to the good moves:-)
Maybe this isn't really a tactic. But in any case, it's kind of a cool mate. Unfortunately, I ran out of time after my opponent played 32. Ke3, so none of this happened.
