    For post #469, it looks like 1. Nc6 is the first move, but I still wasn't able to figure it out. Maybe I will have more time to analyse it later, but it is complicated indeed Smile

    I need help about the position :



    Here black won , but i am not sure whites played the best of their moves. I need some more opinions if the position is really won for black or not.

     Unbalanced chess positions and chess games - not easy to                        .                               estimate

     The position #479 is from a correspondence game ( ICCF)  - official rules - 3 days per move . I played it about 10 years ago in a team championship.

      I will try to comment most interesting moments of the game.

    Here white has large choice of moves 5.d4 , 5.d3 , 5.Bb5 ...

    The move they chose - 5.Na4 is not the best, i think .It's purpose is to prevent 5...Bg4 , after which follows 6.d3 and black knight has not proper place to go.

    After 3 days thinking, i decided to play 5...Bg4 in spite of all.

       Instead of taking the black knight, white has a few other possibilities. It is curious that such a normal move like 7.Be2 appears a mistake and gives black an advantage :

    Taking the black knight was a mistake?

    I think , no, not a mistake , just for clearing the whole picture want to watch what the other possible moves can bring.

    Oh ok.

    How did you evaluate the position before deciding to do the exchange sacrifce?

    I have an old version  "Junior " and it helps me to analyse.Interesting what could show a more new chess program.

    Full of tension is the line after 7.c3 :

      ( obviously, once sacrificed on e4 , the knight has no more fear for his life and continue to sacrifice itself on " f2 " ;)

      Black has only 2 pawns for the knight, which normally is not sufficient compensation , but here white has problems with their king , and it is dominant factor.

      But position is still far not clear.
