    White may have played QxQ and then followed it with f3, Nf3 or many other ideas after black takes back on e8.

    Maybe not the best but you do win a pawn for that queen

    Last hint: When you see a king and queen lined up on a file, what do you do to that file?

    I assume you're hinting at opening this file and put a rook on it to check and win queen for rook.
    Since this is not possible here I think White's best is Nxe4 winning back his pawn with an equal position.If you know a winning move for White I'd very much like to see it.

    You're right. Qe8 was a blunder because of Nxe4! (dxe5 is not possible due to the obvious skewer)

    What did my opponent miss in this Game 3865338 on move 19? I told him after the game that I saw his only logical reply right afyter I pressed the send button.

    It's funny how sometimes your mind thinks that if you take that, he must take that.

    There's no such must thing in chess.

    Below is the position right after white's 19.Bxg5?! move:

    He is a dangerous friend though. See Game 3779487.

    I got a little bit carried away thinking about the attacking possibilities with that nice pawn on d3



    And I can now totally understand how Kramnik felt with Fritz.

    ~Yesterday has been fast and furious, blitzing produced low quality but high-fun games~

    Game 3916223- Funniest game evah 2!!! It can happen to anyone when you blitz 300 moves in a few hours or so, I can’t blame boidos now can I?
    Game 3938174-Rematch wirth my buddy Boidos for the originally posted game Alekhine’s Gun decides.
    Game 3942286- Another product of lightening fast CC game. Lots and lots of mistakes but my strategy of widely opening the game on the kingside and sacking my two pf my tripled pawns for bishop and rook activity almost worked.
    Game 3935470- I loved how I won this game.
    Game 3929570- I loved how I lost this game.
    Game 3912585- White’s back rank weakness loses a piece.
    Game 3935545- This is an ongoing game with another buddy kaspi. No comments on this one, again the Alekhine’s Gun wins a piece.

    p.s. Welcome to the forums kaspi!
