Come Back Loss

Come Back Loss

Apr 13, 2012, 9:08 AM 0

Come back wins are great fun! In sports, come back wins are one of the most exciting aspects of the game. In the NHL recently, the Philadelphia Flyers had a miraculous come back win against the Pittsburgh Penguins in the first game of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Philadelphia Eagles have had multiple come back wins against the New York Giants in the NFL (whats up with Philly and come backs?). But when you're playing chess and you have a come back win, the feeling that you get is great!

Recently, I almost had that feeling. I played a game on Live Chess (here on Chess.com) a few days ago that actually got pretty exciting. I managed to produce a come back in the game, but the come back just wasn't enough to produce a win. It was a fun game though. The time control was 15 minutes with 10 second bonus time. Those types of games can get very exciting. Take a look:

So that is my almost-come-back-win, which would be a come-back-loss. So that is how my come back ended up failing. So my advice to all reading this article: Win your come backs! And don't give up rooks so easily and don't put your king in front of your rook when a queen can check you and take the rook right after. Well, I hope you enjoyed my little article. Have fun playing chess, living life, and all the other fun stuff we do.
