this is a 10 min game, I won on time .....
but was I actually winning ?
plz point out my mistakes ......
I searched and the opening is called "Sicilian Defense - Nimzowitsch Variation - Closed Variation"
Who gave these moves these names ?
Can I assume that Nimzowitch was the first guy to play 2. Nf6 ?
Black opted for sicilian defense on move 1, then black opted for nimzowitch variation on move 2, then white opted for closed variation on move 3, Is that right ???
4...c4 loses a pawn for no compensation.
6. Bb5+ Bd7 7. Bxd7 Nfxd7 8. e5 offers Black very little counterplay and less space in the center.
18. b3 weakens the c pawn.
22. Re3 Bg7 (intending Bh6 winning the c pawn) 23. Ng5 (23. Nh5 Bf5) 23...Bh6 24. h5 Bxg5 White defended his weakness at the cost of creating another one.
36...Nb5 37. Nc6 Nxd4 38. Bd3 Bf8 looks a lot better then 36...Ne4, which leaves the e pawn indefensible. The endgame is tough.
I forgot to mention 41. g4+ Kf6 45. g5+ Bxg5 46. fxg5. After 41. Nf7 Bf8 42. Ng5 h6 42. Nxe4 g5 avoids mate.
