For computer users in the toolbox for the post is a little chess board which when clicked supports load pgn. It might be there for phone users but many do as you have done and other posters grab the ball for you.

okay, I am now on my computer and I see what you are talking about. Thank you for posting the gameplay also, you have any advice for me even though I won I still want to see if I missed any small moves?

If you just went for the gold on move 21 with: Bh6+ you would have had checkmate quicker, and you would have the enemy queen. I'm not a really high-rated person, but I think it was a solid game, and your sacrifices were worth it.

You mean like 7. f3? when 7. Qxg7 Bf6 8. Qg3 won a pawn
8. Be3 is more classical
I would have gone 10. Qf2 after black's crazy king move. Puts queen on same file as king.
14. Na7 two pieces attacking the bishop

20. RxBg7+ might have been a faster mate but black has dropped so much material anyway.

If youre serious about improvement, then post a loss.  Not a win, where your opponent did anything he could to give material away.

Yeah, I think your opponent's the one who ought to be posting that game. wink.png

   From countless defeats you posted a win and probably the most useless one. If you feel nice with your wins and try to forget your blunders you are just one more from the countless amateurs who try to improve the easy way. Unfortunately there is no easy way.

    Face your defeats and your blunders , explain them and try to find the reasons. Analyse your games and post your thoughts and you can get a lot of help. The point of "help" is that you do most of the work and we help and not we do most of the work and the help and you just sit there and do nothing.
