    lol bean fischer that's not great advice


    Indeed, but not because of your variation where after ...Nxe4 Qxh8 Nf6 Black has something that could be considered as vaguely playable, because to play 2...fxe4 you need to still have a pawn on f5 (which is not the case if White plays the correct and already winning 2.exf5).

    i doubt that exchange sac is actually sound but i also agree, 1...f5 is easily refuted without white needing to know anything beyond 2. exf5 but i was merely showing how 2...fxe4 is also a bad move even after white's inaccurate Nc3

    Well, 1. e4 f5 is just bad. I just try to make it a little better, but not good enough.

    Dealing with bad situation, one got to choose a bad one over bad ones.

    I fought every step of this contest, under pressure from the beginning, playing someone with a higher ranking  and better game.  As the net tightened around me, I saw for a fleeting moment an opportunity to escape, sieze the game, and claim victory.  But I didn't take it.  Would move 25 bishop to g7 have swung the match in my favour?  Please post your thoughts, I will really appreciate the feedback.


    Opening mistake or not, you were still alive. So about Bb7 you asked about: your opponent played Qc3, which is a big mistake, which you could have taken advantage of. After 25. ... Bb7, Qb3 doesent work(26. ... Qxa5, and if 26. Qa3, then 26. ... Bxb2 wins. At worst you would have been up a piece for two pawns. And with that position the worst that could happen was a draw.

    Good principle in chess: make the position as wild as possible when you are losing
