I think 0-0 was more or less fine. Activity tends to be more important than the amount of pawns in rook endgames. If I did not have the trick of trapping your rook with 24.Ne4 Rxc2 25.Qd1 Rb2 26.Qc1, then you might even be better if I accept the sacrifice. It was not easy for me to find that trap after you played 0-0 and I was a bit impressed that you did not fall for it. The trap might have worked against players like ry. I think you should have played 23...Rd5 or 24...Rd5 to make pressure towards my e-pawn and  you will have some compensation for the pawn.

I didn't like 24...Rd4 and 25...Qf7. Neither the queen or rook is protected and Nxg5 tactics are in the air. Nxg5 doesn't quite work since you can respond with Qd5, so my c4 move to prevent Qd5 created the threat. I'd say 27...Rf8 was the blunder that lost the game.

You are the only one that CLEARLY surpasses me.

Martin is the only bulldog player that I feel is DEFINITELY better than me. 

Bad_Dobby_Fischer

yeah but how does that relate to his comment

rychessmaster1

He's saying players like me would fall for that. I asked what the refutation to Rxc2 was without really looking into it.

I said might not would. But yeah it was a small roast to mention his name, while still acknowledging that it was an easy trap to miss.
