nobody likes to be manipulated
For post #469, it looks like 1. Nc6 is the first move, but I still wasn't able to figure it out. Maybe I will have more time to analyse it later, but it is complicated indeed
Happy new year!!
I am closing my account by myself . I thought in this site it could not happen , but it is a fact - i was trolled and manipulated .
Sorry to hear.
I need help about the position :
Here black won , but i am not sure whites played the best of their moves. I need some more opinions if the position is really won for black or not.
( Holmes and me are friends ,and i have his permission to post in his hungry territory )
Unbalanced chess positions and chess games - not easy to . estimate
The position #479 is from a correspondence game ( ICCF) - official rules - 3 days per move . I played it about 10 years ago in a team championship.
I will try to comment most interesting moments of the game.
Here white has large choice of moves 5.d4 , 5.d3 , 5.Bb5 ...
The move they chose - 5.Na4 is not the best, i think .It's purpose is to prevent 5...Bg4 , after which follows 6.d3 and black knight has not proper place to go.
After 3 days thinking, i decided to play 5...Bg4 in spite of all.
Instead of taking the black knight, white has a few other possibilities. It is curious that such a normal move like 7.Be2 appears a mistake and gives black an advantage :
Taking the black knight was a mistake?
I think , no, not a mistake , just for clearing the whole picture want to watch what the other possible moves can bring.
How did you evaluate the position before deciding to do the exchange sacrifce?
