Best move for black?

Feb 8, 2014, 11:39 AM |

I recently played a blitz game against a friend and ended up in this position as white, trying to defend. From an engine perspective, the position is hopeless for white. However, I thought that from a practical perspective in blitz, it wasn't so one-sided.

It led me to wonder about the best mindset to adopt for each player when such sharp positions are reached and one is under time pressure.

Any thoughts on how to handle this type of position over the board are welcome!
