We need more amateurs to post their annotated games.

    @ spin : at move 2, g4 is a mistake I think as it weakens your king, and all of your pieces are not developed yet !

    but this typical of amateur's mistake, they push pawns a lot ( me included, and I still do it, and only when I saw its safe to do so). You just have to be more "aware" of your pieces and surroundings, as you missed a lot of good, juicy moves.

    at move 30 I observed that your pawn structure is really good, and the d6 square is literally begging for a bishop or knight to sit on. Material balance is equal, and you have good chances to win, as the e6 pawn are too weak, your bishops are ready to control key squares, at this moment, strong players would have played cat and mouse ( not allowing any counterplay whatsoever, only taking material when its safe to do so, this actually gives a lot of psychological pressure to your opponent)

     

    I believe that with some more practice, you will be a stronger player!

    Just be patient if you're winning.

    @ spinfidelety why didn't you just take the free rook on move 54? or on move 53? (knight for rook trade)

    Thanks for your input, I see what you mean about getting on the d6 and going after weak pawns. I will try to be more patient in my development too.

    Much appreciated Cool

    a bullet game I played today against a 2100 player, I have played against this one before, in a 2 min + 1 sec blitz, winning once Wink, and now, eventhough I lost on time, the tactical shot is something I had always want to do for a long time, in which I do not have the opportunity to do so. 

    I hope that you guys will be able to do such a tactic on high-rated opponents ! Wink

    Hey everyone! I've got two games from the minnesota open from over the weekend. My first one: I got trolled! second one: I spam the tactics!

    black is already in trouble, by not castling, and fyi, Qd6 is not possible, black is losing at this point, due to the threat of Bb5++ double check and mate. 

     

    I suggest at move 8 ... e6 then Be7 and castles. Black is a little bit worse, but not losing as one shows in game continuation.

    ok, time to post some more games, this one is from online chess :)

    first up, a game I played a month ago, I had 2 pawns for a piece, then I did some tactics, and in the end, he resign in a position lots of people said a draw.

    looks like black is winning with his connected passed pawn, when white's pawn seems to be stopped dead in its track, can white salvage the game ?

    @weaponking : nice game ! I thought your position was quite lost there on move 77, but he erred with d6, and you got your chance to salvage the game, the rest is way outside my ability, as I can't see winning variations. Well done !

    Black may well be in trouble, but 12 ...Qd6 does prevent the immediate mate as 13. Bb5 Kd8 and black's queen is defended by the bishop.

    yes, actually you're correct. I made this one a puzzle so that you will understand better what will happen to black if he plays on ;)

    Nicely illustrated there. Took me a couple of tries to get the right line. Learner turned teacher Smile

    That's a 3' fast-but-intense fight in a Rook endgame, decided by a simple pawn.
    Any comments on the endgame will be appreciated, as that's my weakest point.

    pauix: 55... Rc8+ is your move.

    55....      Rc8+

    56. K any Rxc5

    57. Kxc5  Kd2 and pawn queens, giving you a simple K & Q vs K ending.

    ok, I have not been playing longer blitz time, so I chose a 10 min game, and I got a really intimidating opponent, but I think he underestimated me, so he got careless, and lost a piece. I won the game slowly (cat and mouse style), making sure that there are no foolish blunders.

     

    as John Legend would say, "We don't know which way to go.. cuz we are ordinary people... Maybe we should take it slow, take it slow oh oh oh, this time we take it slow. Wink"
