Kingside Attack

starwraith

This is my first year playing chess, and this is one of my better victories so far.  I'm not saying I'm great at chess, but I am proud of this game -- as it was my first attempt at a king side attack.  To me, it appeared that my opponent  had "won" the opening, and I would be battling back the rest of the game.  However, he chose to castle queen side which seems to have been a huge blunder. 

Constructive Criticism welcomed.

nice attack! should have been Queenside attack though, even though Black castled queenside, it is still technically on the "queenside."

 

 

Rd3 was stunning.

kingside means the kings side of the board, not where the king actually is. But very good play.

If 19. ... Bc8 20. Rb3+ Ka8 21. Bxc6+ and I'm sure you can work it out from there.
