Game - 2 & 3

Dec 7, 2011, 2:02 PM |

Game #2 at is a second move resignation (after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3) from an opponent not interested in playing the long version of chess.

Game #3 was a rather tame defeat for me. I'll attempt at a neutral annotation of it:


1. d4 d5 2. c4 dxc4 

The usual Queen's Gambit accepted 

3. Qa4+ Nc6 4. Nf3 

A standard variation of the opening wherein White strives to re-gain the lost pawn.

4... Nf6 5. Nc3 

Both White and Black continue with development of their knights and march towards the center. 

5... Bd7 ?

An inefficient move. The Queen is set to take the c4 pawn anyway.  

6. Qxc4 e6 7. e4 Bb4 

Black develops bishop eyeing his castle, getting a superfluos pin as well. 

8. Bg5 

White gets a better pin, the Queen isn't going anywhere soon. 

8... O-O 

A misread situation, an inopportune moment for castling. Black doesn't realize the danger on the f6 knight . 

9. e5 

The knight is gone!

 9... Bxc3+ 

Haphazard moves, just delaying the inevitable loss of a minor piece. 

10. bxc3 Na5 

Trying to chase the Queen away, trying to force an error in the scutle. 

11. Qd3 h6 12. exf6 hxg5 13. Nxg5 

Black has a mate sneaking up at h7 now 

13... g6 

The h7 mate denied ... for a while 

14. Qh3 

There is no where the Black king can go. No interception of the White's knight at g5 or of Queen at h3. Qh7 is set to be mate. Black resigned.
