I played in the 2013 Oregon Open and did a blog post about it here: http://www.chess.com/blog/Dare-Dare/2013-oregon-open. I went to analyze my games and this third round game stood out. It is a tactical game with blunders from both sides:


White's move Nh3 is a big blunder, allowing Black to play an important move which makes Black better.


 After this move, both sides made many blunders. From this point on you will recieve many puzzles. Time to test your tactical ability!

Puzzle 1:

 Soon after this, my opponent sacked a rook to muddy the waters:

After this rook sack, I really thought the game was over and I could get some rest. How wrong but right I was! (You'll see why!)

Puzzle 2:

However, after this, white miracioulously blundered checkmate in one! Talk about a game with blunders!

Puzzle 3:

Thanks for reading everyone! Please leave a comment with a thought about the game! If I have enough support, I'll do another one of these in depth analysises of my games! Wink
