    I've lost a clan game recently, and still don't know if I could do better at the end.

    "Me Black".

    Should White take Pawn c5?


    Qxb7?


    Qxb7?


    Now I was sure I was better.


    I "won the xchange", but had White in fact a trap in their mind?


    31. ... Ne3
    I still think it was good, albeit the only good move. I think...


    33. ...Qf7
    Was 33. ... Qa7 better?


    35. ... Qc7?
    I have a feeling it was wasting of time.


    36... Qc5?
    I was thinking of 36. ...Qe5 also, and I think now it was better. I guess I was hoping to get white Bishop on c1 by double attack. It was too slow.

    I'm such a patzer old stick in the mud. As black I'd have saved the pawn, lost the fianchetto bishop and lost an ugly game. Or brought my Q over to KS and acted like I was Petrosian, and lost like a poor imitation of The Iron Tiger.
