    I know I made some blunders trying to force it. I saw it was a "smothered" losing trade of queens, but I figured I was just praying my opponent would screw up.

    Somewhere toward the end, did I actually have a way to force smothered mate?

    Hi Paraguy.

    Still jumping out of perfectly serviceable areoplanes?

    I did my 9 years for Queen and country and once they tried to get me
    to get my 'wings'. To hell with that.

    I joined up on two conditions.
    No jumping out of areoplanes and if someone shoots at me I'm off.
    I did not join the army to get shot at!

    Your Game.

    You had a chance to deflect his Queen away from f2 with a good try.

    Now would he have seen his shot with the Queen sac and back rank mate.
    Or would he have remembered the most famous mating pattern of them all
    and played something like 2.Qf3.

    We will never know.

    Have to show it with White going first because although this site has
    worked out how to take money from my credit card they still have yet
    to figure out how to make a PGN thingy dingy work with Black going first.

    This place is run by nit-wits.

    Um...Doesn't white just play Qxf2 after Rce8? Or am I missing something, as usual?

    Ha - correct. (now I'm a nit-wit).

    Although the Queen is pinned there is another Rook on c1.

    Had the postion in mind and got all mixed up cos White had to go first.
    I'm playing Rce8 with the King still in check.

    It's a pain in the butt that bug - wish they would fix it.

    Never mind it was only a blitz game.

    30 ... Rce8 offered White the choice gp hinted at above.

    30...Rce8 31.Qxg4 white does not to take Rook.

    It one of them positions that invites mistakes.

    Ignore my postion as I have the White King in check so to give White
    the move because RED HOT PAWN cannot fix the PGN bug.
    and I was so concerned with that it threw me a wobbly.

    Never mind Sonhouse , it kinda proves we don't use engies.
