I believe Black is lost after this move, his Queenside cannot be held together. } 17.f4 e6 { Feigning an attack on the Kingside I hope to provoke f5 and then switch to the real battlefield - weak pawns on the a and c files. } 18.Rf3 f5 19.Rh3 { ?! A wasted move, simply Qe1 is better } 19...Rf7 20.Qe1 { Bd2 will pick up at least a pawn. } 20...Nb6 21.Nac5 Bc8 22.Nxa5 Nc4 23.Nxc4 dxc4 24.Bxc4 Nc7 ( 24...Nxd4 25.Rd1 ) 25.Qh4 Qxh4 26.Rxh4 Nd5 27.Bd2 Bf8 28.Bb3 Be7 29.Rh3 Kg7 30.Nxe6+ { This move reaches an ending that is simply winning through an exchanging sequence. } 30...Bxe6 31.Rxc6 Bd7 32.Bxd5 Bxc6 33.Bxc6 Rxa2 34.Rb3 { This is as far as I saw, the center pawns must win quickly. } 34...Ra1+ 35.Kf2 Rd1 36.Bc3 g5 37.d5 Kh6 38.d6 Bxd6 ( 38...Bd8 39.e6 ) 39.exd6 Rxd6 40.fxg5+ Kxg5 41.Bf3 Ra7 42.Rb5 Kg6 43.h4 h5 44.Rb8 Ra4 45.Rg8+ Kh6 ( 45...Kf7 46.Rg7+ Ke6 47.g3 ) 46.Rh8+

I recommend clicking on the small chessboard icon to post a game.


I really want that to work, but when I tried it nothing happened, and thanks for putting that other game up too!

Why do you think a poor move order happen early in the game?


When you click on the tiny chessboard just keep trying to post by reading all of the options and small print on both the right and left of the screen.

It will be tough the first handful of times but eventually you will get the hang of it and it won`t be difficult anymore.

I predict  a Fide Master could do it if they tried.

Just take your time and when you think you did it successfully click on preview instead of post first.


If you still have trouble maybe ask your son if that is your son in your avatar.

(getting play against the Black King seems better than just trying to hang on to the extra pawn)

 Nxc4 16.Nd4 Bd5 17.O-O Kb8 18.Rab1 ( 18.Rfb1! Nb6 19.a4 a5 20.e6 ) 18...Nb6 19.Rfd1 Bc5 20.Nb3 Ba3 21.Rd4 Be6 22.Bf3 g5 23.Be3 c6 24.Na5! Kc7 25.c4 Rxd4 26.Bxd4 Rd8 27.Be3 Bc8 28.h4 g4 29.Be4 h5 30.f4 gxf3 31.gxf3 Be7 32.Kh2 Rg8 33.Bf2 Rd8 34.Rb2 Ba3 35.Rb3 Bc1 36.Rd3 Rxd3 37.Bxd3 Be6 38.Bxb6+

 (( ?? A horrible blunder, I glanced up and had 14 SECONDS on my clock, a panic capture ruins a nice ending.  Advancing the e and f pawns as planned should win for White like this 38.Bg3 Bd2 39.Nb3 Bh6 40.Nc5 Bxc4 41.e6+) )) 

38...axb6 39.Nb3 Bf4+ 40.Kg2 Bxe5 41.Nd2 b5 42.cxb5 Bxa2 43.Ne4 f5!  44.Ng3 f4! 

(nicely done by Black, after my 38th he never gave me a chance)

45.Ne4 (if 45.Nxh5 Bf7 ) 45...Bf7 46.Ng5 Be8 47.bxc6 bxc6 48.Kf1 Kd6 49.Ke2 Kc5 50.Kd2 Kb4 51.Kc2 c5 52.Bf5 c4 53.Ne4 c3 54.Nf2 Kc4 55.Be4 Kd4 56.Nd1 Ba4+ 57.Kc1 Bd6 58.Bc2 Bc6 59.Be4 Ba3+ 60.Kb1 Bxe4+
