I apologize right away for not being able to make the game thing work. I tried to
get it right but hopefully you can just look at the game above where you posted it
correctly. When going over the game the following were some of my thoughts:
16. Rc1 f5
.. Nc7 seems more appropriate now, white will be pressuring the
defense of blacks pawn chain - black has no such threat. Opening the file
21. Ng3 Qd7
Perfectly fine - also good is h5 early defending space on the
is ok. Better is attacking blacks backward pawn - Rc6.
This also weakens the pawn at g6 when if h5.
While this move is not bad, it doesn't support blacks plan. Here an assessment of
the position is key before moving forward.
This is just a mistake. Bxf4 first. After this blunder, black is lost
I looked over it pretty quickly and found a few small things in the game I would have
done differently. I also picked out the climax of the game (in my eyes) where your
decision making becomes very key - it changes the course of the whole thing.
My analysis isn't overly tactical so take it with a grain of salt. The best advise on this
game would probably be to slow down and maybe even right down your assessment
of the position before you jump into planning. Below is a relatively tense position
and your about to decide how the ending is going to be played!
So to start...
: Is very high for white and black, black has a
strong fianchetto, and his long diagnal is sealed. White
has two unmoved pawn in front of his king, and has developed
his pieces toward the kingside, increasing king safety.
: White clearly dominates. The white pawn center is
encroaching on blacks space.
: Both parties favor development to the kingside.
White leads in kingside development.
: Blacks has doubled pawns on the queenside,
and the pawn on a6 is being attacked. Blacks pawns are
in blacks space, easily defensible - however white dominates
the space around the central pawn structure. This leaves
the action to the queenside pawns.
: Ng4 is OK... but after making an assessment of the position,
it doesn't fit with any idea that I can make sense out of. Opening up queenside play,
and forcing whites relocation has possibility in my assessment. Qb5 looks good, of
course undoubling the pawns and establishing what looks "drawish".
Qa4 looks better, it directly attacks a3 and defends the attack on a6. Further
this also promps the defense of a3 probably best by Qc2, redistributing whites forces
a5 seems ok at first glance, but b5! looks like an ugly problem.
h5, a Prophylactic move defending the kingside space - is answered by Qxa6, and
things get interesting when h4 Ne2 black equalizes with Nxe4, removing a center
pawn - but at a terrible cost! His king safety is greatly hindered.
