Conditional move not shown.

Chess_Condor can play the conditional move (10...cxd5) and then I'll show the board after 10...cxd5 11. Ba4+

Time warning

vickalan

Patzer calls a time-warning. Chess_Condor must play by 4:18 PM (today July 15) or he forfeits the game. (Based on time stamp with post. Might only be visible when logged off). Time-control is 3 days per move, so Condor needs to reply to 10.Rxd5. Three more days are allowed for the conditional move.

I claim a time win.

Chess_Condor

Good game. I had a 14 hour drive today and couldn't use my computer. I should have thought ahead and called vacation time. Anyways you would have won easily anyways. 

Chess_Condor

Good luck! I'm rooting for you to win the candidates tournament.

Good game by both. Should 1.e4...g5 2.Ng3...Ng6 3.e5...Qg7 (shown here) be called Patzer's gambit? White's pawn is way extended but causes trouble for black throughout the game. The rook sacrifice (10.RxB...PxR) was also interesting (which didn't get finished due to game ending on time). Too bad the game ended early but fun to watch. Congaratulations to JustARandomPatzer for the win!😃

fyi, final position (showing 10.Rxd5...cxd5 11.Ba4+):

I'll update the candidates tournament status (here) soon.

On Kf8/f7 I was planning Nc5. I don't think there's a defense against Ne6/Qe6+
