    I have just played 24.... Ne7 after which my opponent resigned.Another case of early resignation imo.
    The disapointing thing is I had prepared such a nice line in case he would play 25.g4 which looks like a plausible move,although probably not a very good one.
    What do you think?And is this line plausible and sound?

    25.g4,Rc2 26.Re1,Nd5 27.Nxd4,Rg2+!! 28.Kxg2 Nxf4+ 29.Kf1 Nxd3 30.Ne6 Nxe1 31.Nxd8 Bxd8 32.Kxe1 Kf7 0-1

    why the hell, you guys always put rooks on the second rank as soon as possible.


    it is not because a rook, that it is good.


    I simply think..
    white is not a good shape.

    Ho, yeah...


    And Rg2+ is not a good move.... not even needed.


    Nxf4 and white's knight is pinned, he lost a bishop on the move.....

    You to win a bishop,m but we shoudl end this right away, and no need to sac a rook to get a bishop for free. do not sac and, get more....

    Rg2 do not need any exclamation . As white is dead. before the move. he pinned his knight. but there was not many thing he cloud, passed pawns are good.

    What's wrong with 25.... Rc2?

    You're right,no need to sac the rook on g2 the bishop already hangs because my rook is safe.Funny oversight.

    Don't really understand the rest you said

    I haven't analysed the line to death but I agree with your last sentence. You'd think with 4 edits they'd make their meaning plainer. Shame because what she said about the knight pin was good stuff. I don't quite understand the poster's intention when she speaks about "he lost a bishop on the move", for example. Any clarity appreciated.
    Anyway, not a bad combo, Nxf4 is probably better, but the original line would also likely have shredded the defences of a minnow like myself. The fact that you're going into that much depth is pretty impressive at our levels as well.

    I agree, your position is won though

    She, ?v

    Yeah, he is going dept, but when there is no need to go dept, it is like training.

    Hwta is important, is to not include lost piece, in your calculs, (What I do often)


    ( And remplace those she with he, I am male.

    I had in mind 26.... Rxb2
    or 26.... Nc6 (threatening 27..... Ne5 28.... d3+) 27.f4 Rxb2

    You all seem to think this is such a clearly won position but I was very surprised my opponent resigned.Sure,black is winning but there's still a lot of work to be done.One mistake and it's equal again.Or worse!
  11. 27 Dec '09 21:23
    no, Black can even afford do some weak move, white is far from drawing,

    resign was justified.

    And why the hell, you take on b2, the main goal is to promote your pawn here, not to take useless junk, while it is a big mistake, be carfullk before taking such pawns, are I had some opponents that lost because of it.

    you shouldn't expect much help from someone who is rude to even those who try to help him. (he has a history of that.) : Thread 117322

    Yeah I’d say the resign was justified - you may not have been able to play out you’re great combination but that’s Chess! I’ve had people in OTB struggle on for 20 moves with ridiculous material down only to resign two moves before they got mated - annoying but a wins a win

    In CC I do tend to resign if I loose any serious material (although I am currently plodding on a Knight down in 2 games) because ultimately you are beaten, your opponent just has more time to think it out and grind you into a lost endgame.

    But he's not even down a piece.He's in trouble but not yet lost.Stranger things have happened!

    You guys make think I'm one of those who play on too long in completely lost positions
