    Yeah, this is gonna be my longest Chess.com tournament ever because I am always eliminated in the first round. Since it took me about a year to get to the second round I hope I will make it to the finals in 2017. LaughingLaughing

    Crimson, if you think I sided with her I owe you an apology. I played two games with her and she is pretty touchy. She got upset over nothing and resigned both games. Consequently, I apologize to you.

    In my far from purely chess based opinion both of you (August & Crimson) have some problems to play chess just for fun. And serious tendency to circumlocutory.

    CrimsonWizard I checked the position and I agree 21. Bxf6 was a bad move followed by another bad one.

    I would say these two moves let your opponent steal your victory. But to be fair I have to mention that your opponent`s move 20 was a terrible mistake which can be seen in the analysis she posted - 20...Bd5??

    Not one of my most familiar, but we'll see how we go. It's a good way of getting a grip on this old opening
