In this live blitz game, white pieces were very nicely coordinated. The key to controlling the board was the combination of diagonal control from the bishop pairs and pawn support from major pieces.
Two major observations (there could be more, but I'm currently not in a good shape to go beyond) were:
It was an open game and I believe there must be some beautiful variation hidden somewhere along the road. Any building comments are very welcomed.
I just updated the board. My apologies.
Instead of 44. Bf3
You should play :
47.Qa6# That's mate in 4, in stead of winning in 7 :)
34. Bf4+ Re5 35. Bxe5+ Nxe5 36. Rd7
39. Bxc6+ Rxc6 40. Qxc6#
41. Rda1 Qb5 42. Bc4 Rfd8 43. R1a6+
44. Bc4 Nf2+ 45. Kg1 Ra8 46. Qb2+
48. Qa5+ Kb7 49. Qb5+ Ka7 50. Qxf5
51. Qa3+ 51. .. Kb7 52. Qe7+ Kb6 53. Qb4+
Thanks, i really missed some good chances!
Thanks so much! I kinda regretted the move 37.Qc2. Missed the Rxa6# chance. :(
And that was a very nice mating pattern you got there. Thanks again
That's blitz for you!
yeah.always overlooked good chances in blitz =.=''
