You forgot to mention you were playing bullet. 

Having a material advantage means nothing if you get behind on time.

There's an old saying that to win a won game, you must reduce your opponent's counterplay to zero. 

The engine can tell you you're ahead by 50, but if your opponent has dangerous counterplay the engine evaluation means very little in a practical setting (like an OTB game).

Queen and pawn endgames in particular are difficult when your king doesn't have shelter from checks.

Post a whole game to get specific advice.

advice needed

pfren

Where did you get that winning advantage?

After swapping rooks and pushing the pawn at c3 (move no.38) you have no advantage at all.

The position IM pfren was talking about.

sammy_boi

I think your biggest opportunity was 32...Rd8. I explain why and give a variation.

I also give general analysis of the endgame.

 

sammy_boi

Glad I agree with IM Pfren. The engine liked 32...Rxf1, but really, it looks like a bad move. You can't always trust engine evaluations in the endgame, but even if objectively it's a win, computer suggestions can be completely impractical.

JayeshSinhaChess

After exchanging rooks why didn't you play b5. It basically ends any chance of your opponent winning the game.

sammy_boi

At a glance, 33...b5 could even lose after the queen trade Qb8-xb5 Qxb5? axb because white can catch black's pawn, but black can't catch white's.

is the move ne4 good? or should i just play bg7 or d6 instead

sammy_boi

In general Ne4 would be a bad move in the opening.

But in that position you're attacking his bishop, so it's fine. Capturing on g5 would have been good.

Taking on c3 and following up with c5 is interesting, but as far as I understand the logic of the position (you gave him doubled pawns then blocked them with c5) you next move, which was d5, is inconsistent (allows cxd to get rid of doubled pawns making your last few decisions look odd).

 

But back to basics, the big decision for the finachetto against d4 and c4 is whether you're going for a grunfeld (with d5) or King's Indian Defense (with d6). I assume you don't know either opening if you're asking about what to do on move 3.

Both are good openings played by many GMs and have tons of theory associated with them.

 

zeitnotakrobat

Black was clearly winning in case of 30. ... Rxf1+. The passed pawn is decisive here.

sammy_boi

That's a good point. I recommended rook back to d8 on move 32, but if you don't let white force it to d1 in the first place then it saves a whole tempo on the winning plan c3-c2-Rd1.

It happen to all chess players, speacially if you play only bullet and blitz and cant control the clock, play slower games
