I was playing someone over 100 rating points higher, and thought i could never win. I tried to keep the initiative, and it proved winning.
not very interesting .. but i like it
double pawn on d file lol... rating is not everything
What happened to the Nimzo Larsen?
Nice game, Todd.
I still like the nimzo Larsen just adding aa little to my repertoire ;-)
At the end, I think Nf6+! was even stronger than what was played in the game, even though that was good too. :)
Nf6 would have been much better. I was so certain I would take bishop, I locked on Ne7....need to work on my tunnel vision at times.
Be more supportive! There are several mistakes he could have made, but didn't. Good job-
Why 18. ...Qxe7??
18. ... B/Nxe7
If 18. ...B/Nxe7 then 19.Qxd7, winning Q with no compensation. Whatever move he makes is going to lose the Q. Therefore, 18. ...Qxe7 19. Rxe7 Bxe7 . He is only slightly down in material ( Q for R and N). Had I moved Nf6! I would effectively win Q for N. Hope that makes sense.
