After the tragic loss last round, I was spent. I also knew the only thing I would be playing for in my last game was rating points. I played my last game against my good chess.com friend kodfish. I played my worst chess yet.
I blitzed out the opening and got a huge advantage. Unfortunetly, I missed a easy tactical blow that would have given me the win, which is unforgiveable for a player of my supposed caliber. After I chose a worse continuation, kodfish showed his talent. I drifted and he found a great move Rc5! which gave him tons of counterplay against my pawns. I also totally missed another point, it threatened c4 winning a piece. I blunderfully allowed c4 and although kodfish did not find the way to collect an easy piece he was able to navigate the game to a pawn up rook ending. If I was on top of my game I would have drawn the ending in my sleep, but as it turns out, I didn't really care and got extremely careless. kodfish brought home the the point brilliantly.
