Analysis of Previous Game
My last post held a game which I lost in 19 moves, which I thought I should have won. Well, as it turns out, I found a combination which would have finished the game extremely quickly. I will illustrate it for you.
This move got a ! in my original analysis, as the Knight appears to be poisoned. If I take it, the Queen comes to d1 with check and I lose either my Bishop or my Rook. In the heat of a 2-minute chess match, I did not see that the Knight could actually be taken and played 13. b3?? In my initial analysis, I simply passed over this. But I actually can finish my opponent off. Here it is as a puzzle
That beats 13. b3?? any day. I hope you enjoyed this, and I have learned that analyzing something several times helps. Good luck in your chess and have yourselves a Merry Christmas
