Help me again, please !

I think pfren is right. If I made 34. g5, I could maybe even win this game.

So it seems.

It's funny, my engine doesn't initially realize this is bad for black.

 

 

??  

Does that mean you think it's obvious how white should win and you don't know why my engine doesn't see it right away, or does it mean you don't know how white wins?

I mean that if I made 34. g5... as pfren said... my position started to be looking as wining one at once.

Sorry for my bad English.

Yeah, but how likely are you to find the same sort of idea in a different game?

Walking the king towards your pawn majority to support a passer is a basic idea in nearly all endgames.

llamonade, thank you but you know.. I don't trust engine too much. Some moves, which it suggests, look strange sometimes.

Yes, yes... and my father taught me this way... This is why I decided to send my King toward the center of the board.  ))

 

But as it happened... this was my blunder.

The engine suggests 34.g5

(and also 35.g5)

Yes, because you wasted about 3 tempi playing things like 35.c3

You'll also notice 37.g5 was a large blunder that made the game a draw right away.

Hmm... in my logic in that moment the move 35. c3 was made to open the road for my King toward the center of the board.

I tried to play as usually it's recommended... I tried to activate my King.

But in your post number 17# your engine suggested for Whites 34. King c 1 ! )))

Uhu… and 46. c4 was a blunder also.

I should make 46. cb…   but I was in state of panic in that moment already. I didn't know what I do..

Incorrect.

33 Re4 should win. Pulling the R back to defend gives away all your advantage because the h pawn is permanently weak and it's hard to make progress.

In all likeliness, 33.Re4 is a generous donation of half a point to the opponent.

33.Rf2, as played, is a very easy win for white.

But then he could take my h-pawn with his Rook !  Look, 33. … R+h2. And then I saw in my imagination that the next Black move would be 34. R + e6, R g2.

And after that the Blacks sent black King to intercept my g-pawn.  Do you see ?

pfren, so mine 33. Rf2 was a right move. )))

So I am not a quite fool.

Maybe one-two-three more years... and I will learn to play Chess though.

llamonade, I don't know.

It's difficult question for me. Maybe it worth for me to begin to study Chess theory.

I always wonder how you can play strategically... 

In your first post which you deleted... you wrote that you understood that I had no plan in this game... It's true.

I had no plan. I tried to react to moves of my opponent and to do my best... because I knew that he is a Chess master.

Anyway, after your useful advises my next game with IMVoja was a draw already. ))))

This one https://www.chess.com/analysis/game/live/3725303887?tab=report

I made a computer analysis after, and again I had no clue what my "mistake" engine found out in my playing... ? Why my move 9. g 5 was a mistake as the chess.com engine said ?

After exchanging queens it seems like black will be much faster to stop those pawns and push his queenside after you try to defend the kingside pawns.

It’s also hard to avoid him chopping your king off in this position because his took was more active
