Hi, I'm relatively new to the site but finally got rid of the provisional rating and I thought maybe it was time to join the discussion and ask for some advice.
Basically I'm looking for advice in general on how to improve, so, if you have some free time, or are feeling particularly generous, play through some of my games and be as critical as you please.
In the spirit of asking a specific question, I will post one of my recent games, in which I win pretty convincingly, but I think it's entertaining.
I often have trouble finding a quick win once I'm ahead, do you see a faster win? Around 22. Qd2 I start being unable to see the logical next step.
Here is a recent lost, in which I never really put up any struggle. Where did I go wrong? Maybe Nb8?
