Great game I played recently:
look to the this nearly the same variations ^_^http://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/accepted-kings-gambit?lc=1#last_comment But black win :)
Well, in the game I posted I certainly didn't know whether I would win or whether black would succeed. And because of that it was indeed a great and very exciting game.
Some elementary misses by both players:
- 8...d5 ends the game immediately.
- 10.Qxf3? (mentioned in the comments) is bad for white after 10...d6.
14.Nc6+?? is a terrible miscalculation. After the simple 14.Nxf3 Qxc1+ 15.Kf2 I believe white is better.
14...bc6?? throws away an easy win, like 14...Nxc6 15.Qxh8 Qg1+, when white has a "pleasant" choice between allowing Black to queen the f3 pawn, giving up his queen to avoid checkmate, or allow Black to mate him. I would pick the latter, as the game isn't interesting, in any case.
15...Qxc1+?? is a second blunder in a row. Black should be better after 15...Qg1+ 16.Kd3 (16.Kxf3 Qf1+ loses the "good" f7 bishop) f2 17.Bg5+ Qxg5 18.Nd2 Ke7.
Well, interesting enough so that you chose to take the time to analyse the game.
Thanks for that!!
Amazing what one can miss in such a game.
He is a very good player and can analyze or see these things rather quickly!
If you post here and give a game--you take a chance of being shot down!
Why not look at it from a positive side? Personally I take the view that I take a chance of my game being analysed and/or commented by a great player.
I have seen many of pfren's posts around and I like reading them. It was unexpected that he commented on my game, but I enjoy it actually and appreciate it very much.
Yes, you are right--it is a positive thing that you posted a game and got good analysis on it.
IMO the OP should be more worried about missing the very obvious 8...d5, after which white is completely busted.
