    I think I need advice from better, more experienced players. This is the game I'm in. I'm white, and it's my move.

    Game 6426138

    I feel there is a way to get him in the next few moves, but I'm having trouble 'seeing' it. Help!

    Thats actually not allowed here. So you'll want to do your study on your
    own. That said, I do have some advice. Try using the "Analyze board".

    Go through the position using the analyze board, and make moves for each
    side in the most logical fashion as possible. This is a good strategy for
    all of your ongoing games.

    Once you think you have a good candidate, flip the board around, and see
    if you can stuff your ideas. I also recommend going over players games whom
    you admire, if you enjoy their ideas and their style on the board, play over
    their games. Take notes of the things you see that you like. Use them later.

    Crap, really?! All right then. I haven't really tried the 'Analyze' thingy. I'll give it a try.

    The game is still in progress, once you're done we'll be glad to help.
    We're not allowed to help while a game is still being played.

    while the game is in progress, you're allowed to consult books and databases, but not chess engines, endgame tablebases or other people.

    Players accidently posting their own GIP's on the Main Forum is quite common.

    Perhaps there should be a system check to prevent a user trying to
    post one of their own unfinished games.

    I could take this idea to Site Idea but I cannot be bothered.

    Having said that - good entertaining game.

    Okay, I get it. Fair enough. But, after I screw it up, y'all will show me what I did wrong, right?!

    p.s.

    If life seems jolly rotten
    There's something you've forgotten
    And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
    When you're feeling in the dumps
    Don't be silly chumps
    Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing
