N00b: Can't understand the analysis

Pennmeister

Hi guys! New to this forum and a bit new to chess so please be patienthappy.png

Have been playing a lot of games and tried to use the analyse function to improve my game. Sometimes it feels like "blunders" are wrong call from the computer but since I'm new I suspect myself.

Example in the attached screen-shot. Why does the computer want me to move my (white) queen to D8 and be threatened by the black bishop in F6.

Thanks / E

The analysis shows the suggested line. The idea is that after black takes the queen white get the material back after pinning the black queen to the king.

 

The reason it is marked as a blunder is that the suggested move had a better evaluation. But both moves are completely winning, so it isn't a true blunder.

Okay, so from what I can see you're temporarily up a piece (Knight) and the move you just played doesn't keep the Knight. After playing the computer move and temporarily sacrificing your Queen, you then play Rf1 pinning the opponents queen and winning it. You now have enough time to safely rescue your Knight. I'm on mobile right now so I can't use PGN to show the moves I'm proposing. I hope you get it though.

I don't see how he keeps the Knight on a1 after Kg1 while the computer's move keeps saves the Knight. without the Knight he's only a pawn and an exchange up so it's not completely winning.

Could you give us the FEN or PGN from that position? Then I can show you the sequence of moves that should follow.

How to get PGN:

I hope this is good enough. Queen is pinned (cant move since otherwise king will be in check). You either get a queen for a rook - or if black moves the king - you get blacks queen?

After getting those pieces off the board, white has a passed pawn that will be almost impossible to stop

(Also note the var 1 Qxd8 Qe4+ 2 Qd3--without which this wouldn't work.)
