Off the hook

Oct 16, 2010, 5:06 AM |

This is a game I recently played at my club.  I played well until I played bad and took a totally won game and position and handed it over due to plain and simple bad calculation and seeing threats that just weren't there.

I hope this will help at least someone out there to take their time after making the effort to get a won game.  Don't panic when an enemy queen gets close to your king!  Make sure your enemies threats are REAL!

Good, then bad, then just ugly.

I'm not looking for advice on where I went wrong, I have already found that out with analysis.  Hopefully someone out there will benefit from this embarrassing finish so that they take their time and try to think clearly when coming to crunch-time!
