4th Annual ChessNuts Challenge Open, Concordia College

  • #1

    This was my first tournament. I don't think I played my best. Might've been nerves, or the fact that it was a live game. Anyways, any help would be appreciated very much. Thanks!

     

    More to come later. I gotta get some sleep.

    Thanks for the help! yeh I see how 8...dxe4 would be very strong. 30...Ng3, I didn't see Qf8, and thought it was the only way not to lose the rook.

    Game 3. I actually win this won! But I think I got real lucky...

    Nc3 was in response to NF6, but obviously it got me into trouble after Bg7...

    9.Nxg6 Bxc4 10.Nxf8, trading a rook and a pawn for bishop and Knight. Is Black's bishop really that strong on C4?

    I agree. I should have castled much sooner, and pushing the f-pawn would have been a good idea.

    Thanks for your input!

    Just an advice.. Doubled pawns isnt always weak for the opposition.
