Hi Guys. Please do check out this game I played following QGD line and let me know your feedback. My most convincing victory over a higher rated opponent, and I tried to follow all the basics like sound development in the opening, looking for exchange of Queens in anticipation of an obviously superior endgame and placing all of my Pawns on opposite colored squares as compared to my opponents Bishop ; all these factors combined probably choked my opponent towards the end, and it was a really sweet victory!!
Here's a Queen's Gambit: Accepted game. I played this game on a 10 min timer ea player, on Live chess. Never more than ONE point difference entire game. Using tactical objectives, I gained advatage, and maintained throughout. With QG:A, get control of center board, block and take Castle away, and trade down peices even Q.
I don't get it why you let your d4 pawn taken the knight (check) in 17th move. Why don't you prevent the check or defend the pawn before the knight move? *I'm still learning
curious as to what you guys play against this, I tend to play slav defense and it does ok.
I used like e3. Reason being if then 3. ... b5 4. Qf3 hitting the rook. Of course if 3. e4 b5 4. a4. I also saw that 4. ... c6 saves everything. This is also the one gambit i will play. Unless i'm black and met with an Evans. I accept that one.
yes. in fact right after i missed that making other move... i told the guy in comments I had missed my checkmate. he knew he was already in trouble though. lol
2nd game turn 15 you had a checkmate.
I asked without thinking I could seek... I found one called Queens Gambit Gurus... i applied. waiting. Played two good games though I blundered one, but I had strong opening. I'm going to reflect on later... both Blitz. I don't have time to create here, but will post link, for both.
Both good QG games.
http://www.chess.com/livechess/game?id=744974131 Accepted, went my way, til I blundered on 13, when I should of taken Q. Finally lost.
http://www.chess.com/livechess/game?id=744983367 They didn't even have a typical opening. Good game here, though I made mild blunder near end, post poned my checkmate. Still won.
A quick search brings up a few... =/
Very true! Good point. Thanks.
Of course, playing any opponent, never know their skill level, just gotta play to the best of your own ability, and when they make that mistake... WE ALL DO!!... capatalize on it!
Is there a group for the Queen's Gambit??
congrats, but all that really shows is what can happen when your opponent isn't studied on the opening and makes blunders. Due to this being so common I find people tend to know it just as well as I do if not better.
I love this opening. Love it. I play it all the time. Varily rarely I lose. though I do with a common response mentioned by UnsuitableUniverse few back.
btw... when they accept right away, I first move e4. This opens threat on lone pawn w B. the e4 is double active; as its taking control of center, and threatening the pawn. The Bx move is Double active as its developing and capturing.
To the Bb4 move that UU mentioned, if it works out, I like to Check w Qa4+, though some see my double active, block with Kn and Gaurd B... sometimes I can work it out and still gain peice...
BUT. I love this game I posted below. Queens Gambit accepted... a 10 min blitz game. After he took gambit, and I took center board with my e4 move. He took about 2 min thinking. when I said something, and he finally moves, he says... "your going to need the extra time" and I busted him wide open.
This opening is a very powerful opening and when someone plays d4 against me I like to play Nf6 then when they play c4 I play e6 and then finally when they play Nc3 I play Bb4 and have a good game. I like when they accepted and I don't like it as much if they decline it but I still like it. I don't like if the don't play d5 back at me. The Queen's gambit is sometime not even called a gambit because a trap that black can fall into prevents black from defending the pawn. You don't have to play Nc3 when they accept it because they're is no dangerous Queen check. I LOVE this opening along with the Giuoco piano and the Fried Liver attack. I hope you learned something!
Played against 2... Be6 today. Terrible response, and here's a great example of the trouble you can get into playing it.
