    Game 6506339

    I wish this never happen again, but I 've somthing like this too.
    Game 6506291

    That will teach me, to be too fast. This is not blitz.

    Have I missed something? Knight to f8 wins an exchange, yes?

    I panick when this happen and lose totally capacity to play correctly, and I am not so strong...

    I still fear to lose pawns.

    So you'll only be down a minor piece to two pawns. No reason to throw in the towel yet. You'd have to watch out for White's queen/bishop mating threat (B to h6), but I think f6 ends that threat. Am I right?

    I am everything but materialist, Such a blunder is horrible, I had nothing that can be a compensation.

    We must always see if our opening is refuted, for the one loving the falkbeer, I think I may have somthing for you soon.

    I agree with Mad Rook, the game was not yet lost. In this game I basically blundered a rook, totally missing his reply of 22 .. f6 to stop mate. I almost resigned on the spot, but decided to keep going.

    So even being a piece down, the game is not necessarily lost. It depends on how active your remaining pieces are.

    Game 6559556


    This is not blitz, too bad I miss Nxe4, that would have been good. I did not really hink, just played some moves.

    Black has an extra pawn island. There's no coming back from that horrendous blunder.

    Edit - All kidding aside, it looks like the e4 pawn falls at the very least, maybe a bit more material. I guess AS just doesn't like playing with a material deficit.
