    @tongtian Yes!  24.f3 is better... and black needs to play 24...d5. After 24.Bf1, it is about equal, after your suggested 24.f3! white is better. Luckily, my move won immediately, due to my opponent's blunder next move!

    Your move is +1.2 for white according to the latest engine version of Stockfish.

    Thanks for the video. btw. Orest Popovych has had a remarkable career as an FIDE master, a professor emeritus of analytical chemistry at Brooklyn College of the City of New York, and an expert translator.  He won the New Jersey championship in 1959, 1961, 1985, and 2001. He co-authored the book Nonaqueous Solution Chemistry and was President of the Shevchenko Scientific Society, USA. He wrote or edited 4 books in English and one in Ukrainian. He translated Vasyl Makhno’s Ukrainian poetry in their bilingual book titled “Thread and Selected New York Poems” (2009), for which Popovych received the “2010 Prize for Best Translation from Ukrainian into English” from the American Association for Ukrainian Studies.

    How do you go from +1 to -25 in only one move? You play your nemesis! GM Finegold shows off three interesting blunders, the last of which he goes down in flames against GM Shabalov, who always seems to have Ben's number. But in the first two games, a younger Finegold finds two creative ways to extract a win from a lost position. In the first, he gives his opponent a queen and the move and still wins! In the second, he offers the lady again! Who needs queens when you're 2500?

    Hey Ben - thank you for another great video with interesting games and a very instructive analysis!

    By the way, I think you're being too modest and selling yourself short regarding Shabalov - after all, the April 2014 FIDE ratings puts his ELO at 2501, ranked 37th in the U.S. (active players) and 776th in the world (all players), and yours at 2506, 36th in the U.S. and 732nd in the world! That must count for something ; )

    Month ago I sent a request to chess.com for video lessons on swindles and how to maximize your chances in an objectively lost position. Looks like they made my wish come true.  Thanks!! I appreciate it!
