fascinating tactical game board #315413

This is perhaps the most complex tactical game I have yet played. Some of the moves took me quite awhile, and I never felt 100% comfortable with my analysis, since the game was extremely WILD. Enjoy it chess comrades, and the more diligent students may perhaps enjoy doing some analysis. I feel that I played very well, bu there were some situations which got very close to checkmate for my king!!!

taoistlunatic 149 ( +1 | -1 )
my analysis during the game 1.e4 c5
2.Nf3 Nc6
3.Bc4?! (out-of-book, bad position for the bishop.) e6
4.Nc3 a6
5.d3 b5 (white doesn't play the usual d4 break, but plays a closed sicilian.)
6.Bb3 Be7
7.Bf4 d6
8.a3 Nf6
9.e5 dxe5
10.Bxe5 0-0
11.h4 Bb7
12.Qe2 Nxe5 (black obtains the bishop-pair)
13.Qxe5 Qd7
14.0-0-0? a5! (after white castles queen-side. black begins a triple pawn wing attack.)
15.Ne4 Ng4 (forking the queen and f2 pawn)
16.Qg3 h5 (supporting the knight, and blocking white's h-pawn)
17.Nf-g5 a4
18.Ba2 b4
19.Rh-e1 bxa3
20.f3?? (this move was premature allowing...)axb2+ (obtaining a passed pawn on the a-file and exposing white's king)
21.Kxb2 Nf6 (I retreated the Kinght as I could not see any forced mate on white's exposed king.)
22.Kc1! (white's king begins a journey to safety)Qb5
23.Kd2! Rf-d8
24.Ke2 Qb2(forking the bishop and c2 pawn)
25.Bxe6?? (why not Bc4?) fxe6
26.Kf1 Qxc2?? (should have defended e6 with Bd5)
27.Nxe6! (threatening mate on g7!) Ne8
28.Qf4 Rxd3
29.Ne4-g5! (threatening a mating combo starting with Qf7+) Nf6!
30.Rd-c1 Qd2 (black wants to exchange queens to relieve the pressure on his king.)
31.Qf5 Rd5
32.Qh3 a3
33.Nxg7!! (another mating threat, if black takes the poisoned Knight, 34.Rxe7+! is deadly) Ba6+
34.Kg1 a2! (unafraid of the king-side threats, I marched my passed pawn towards glory.)
35.Qe6+ Kh8
36.Qxe7 Qd4+
37.Re3 a1=Q
38.Rxa1 Qxa1+
39.Kh2 Ng4+! (releiving the danger on my king and liquidating down to a won endgame.)
40.fxg4 Qxg7
41.Nf7+ Kg8
42.Rf3 Bc4
43.g5 Rd2? (my mouse slipped! I meant to play Rd4 threating Rxh4+)
44.Nh6+ Kh8
45.Qe4 Bd5
46.Qe3 Bxf3! (beginning a liquidation combo, which forces the trade of queens.)
47.Qxd2 Qe5+
48.Kh3 Bg4+
49.Nxg4 hxg4+
50.Kxg4 Qd4+
51.Qxd4 cxd4
52.Kf3 Re8 (the rook cuts off the king fron the passed pawn.) White resigns. (0-1)

tactical game great game guys....thought the black king was trapped for sure but you never know.....

Great game... Took a chance on the (3.Bc4) move (out of book) But played a sharp middle game and an excellent endgame... I think with his (Black) (too many) pawn moves in the opening help give you an edge in development... Keep on pushing wood...


P.S. Got your E-Mail... And I agree with you... I'm just comfortable with Silmans method of thought is all... But in the end, it is whatever works, isn't it?... Thanks again...

I was black in that game, Bro! And I won with my too many pawn moves!
taoistlunatic 6 ( +1 | -1 )
And black played the opening excellently my development was actually superior than white's by move #12 or so.

So sorry... I stand corrected... Then I should say "his third move Bc4 was risky and didn't quite pan out"...
