    Very nice game, particularly the piece co-ordination at the end.

    Easy for you to say at the end of the game. I would have resigned as Black- no move prevents Nxf7+ or queen harassment as far as I can see from an analysis. He had few choices. Want to play a setpiece game from there?

    You are correct, I should have said blacks 3rd move was terrible

    If I was black, I wouldn't resign, too, but give the opponent this nice end position. I think, when I am one move from mate, especially with such a nice end position, its invidious to resign
