Here's another one. :) I played black, time control: 10|2, OTB.
Ooops, I forgot to add... We were both in time trouble the last 2 moves ;)
here is a game that my friend and I played here.
He's not as good as me. If you could analyze it for us, (both for me and him) I would be happy. Thanks.
I need to post my opinion about this thread, sorry... It makes no sense to analyse bullet or blitz games. Even rapid games are on the border line... Try to play, analyse an post tournament games or corr games.
I post one of my games with detailed annotations
Hope wether you can learn something, or give me some tips
You missed a much better move at move eleven.
Hi, thanks for your reply. Yes I forgot this to mention. FM Wukits considered this after the game and FM Kleiser mentioned in annotations in a magazine I think. There are some problems for White comparing with similar positions. I'll try to show some lines. Sorry, I'm doing without engine now, but you could check
Houdini reccomends 17.Bd1 as best.
I think you might be right. There is no way to compensate for the lost piece in the end, but it does lead to an equal position.
Lasker would always create imbalances in his games in order to psychologically test his opponents.
Plus, Houdini actually reccomends this.
Yereslov, what about my game? ;)
Perfect, thank you a lot! Some of mistakes I already discovered, but there are many interesting lines I've totally forgotten. :)
Here's the game from move 11 :)
@ vengence : umm, am I missing something, or after 23. exf5??? black gets a free mate in 1 Qg2# ?
after 21.Rdg8, white can play f5!, now the f pawn after exf5 don't look strong at all. You still had BSB so should be ok, but white's knight exchange with your BSB, your game will fall apart easily, I mean backward f pawn on a open file lol.
If black try to pass (e.g Ne7) then comes fxe6 dxe6 Bf7! attacking the rook and the e6 pawn, black is lost I think.
For D Blower in #704:
On move 3, white could have played cxd5, and then if Nxd5 4. e4 and a big pawn center and your Knight on the run. If you take with the Q, he plays Nc3 first and then probably follows up with e4: huge space advantage and your pieces scampering.
From now on, if you play 1. d4 d5 2. c4, your response is e6 or c6 or dxc4 please.
Your be pleased to know that I do!
You should try making more sense when you comment.
just posted all the annotated games from my first tournament if you guys are interested.
22. f5 Ne5 seems to give Black still some life in the position though I would hate to be the defender here. For example, one line might be: 22.f5 Ne5 and then:
I've been a member of Chess.com for a couple of days now, and I'm very much liking it here. I'm more of a casual player at the moment, but I did play competitively during high school. This is my favourite game so far that I've played, a 3-minute game against a player of similar rating. Hopefully this can give players an insight to the game of a newcomer, and I can earn a little feedback with it.
22. f5 exf5 23. Rxf5 (exf5?? Qg2#) Nh4 24. Rf1 Bxg3 25. hxg3 Rxg3+ 26. Kh1 (26. Kh2? Rg2+ 27. Kh1 Qd6 winning)
and Black will have a comfortable game. White's best move to follow is 29. Ncd5 here to avoid 29...Nf5 where there is a pin to the King by the b7 Bishop. Then Black simply plays 29... Bxd5 30. exd5 Qxf4!! and White cannot stop the mate threat of Rh3# without loss of material (31. Rxf4 Rh3# while 31. Rf2 Rh3+ 32. Rh2 and both Queen or Rook mates. 31. Kh2 is no better in view of 31... Rg2++ and now if 32. Kh1 then Rook or Queen mates while if 32. Kh3 either g file Rook or the Queen can mate here).
Perhaps better on 21.... Rdg8 for White is simply 22. Bxg6 Rxh3 23. f5 exf5 24. Bxf5 Rhh8 25. Qf3 and now Black has to play 25... c4 to open lines to the King though White can simply play 26. d4 and Black is getting limited compensation for his attack plus is 2 pawns down in the middlegame. Play might follow with 26... Bc7 27. d5 Qd6 and White can hold the position here very well.
In the middle paragraph, I think an extra number was added to the moves so pull the order back by a move to follow the game correctly.
Nice game here. Take a look at move 31 though. You had a faster win here.
Good play at such a fast time control as well.
Is it possible to go back to basics?
