    Ended up winning. But, I probably shouldn't have after the ridiculous move 35.b-c6?? giving up the one advantage (which I was planning on winning with-the queenside majority along with knight versus bishop)

    What do you think the best way to proceed at move 35 is?

    oops I fail....http://www.chess.com/echess/game.html?id=42594076

    here is the link to the game....obviously it is still "in progress" but not really. I catch his pawn he can't catch mine.

    I've got no clue where you got your PGN text, it makes no sense. Part of your failure was also the [ /pgn ] to start the pgn. Where are all the spaces required to separate the moves? Hit reply and quote to see how it's pasted properly. Have fun.

    Wow, that is weird. I just copy and pasted the pgn from the link. Oh well, thanks for posting that though. Any thoughts on the game? Mistakes other than the obvious one where I lose a pawn or where he allows me to go into the king and pawn endgame?

    Hmm...maybe I should have mentioned skeeter somewhere in here. Is this game really perfect? No comments at all?

    The first thing that I see is 12.Qa4+... pretty much a useless move that loses, count em, two tempi. One for moving the queen to a4 and one for moving it back to d1.

    after 15. q-d1 the knight has left the kingside. Is 2 knight moves to a bad square really a gain of tempo?
