    Game 3463652

    It started out as a benoni and quickly spiralled out of controll, leaving an interesting position after move 23 with many imbalances, white had won the exchange, a rook for a bishop, but was bound to lose his knight. After move 28, I had R+B+N and 4 pawns vs 2R's and 5 pawns... even though none of my pawns were connected, it actually seemed to help as the pawn 'islands' served as great support for my B+N, while white blundered in the end, I still think I could have promoted my pawn before white could have promoted his, or else forced the exchange of one of my minor pieces for his rook. What do you think?

    Haha, well no... interesting because of the imbalances... I like games with such imbalances, its the first game (I think) that i've played here where I ended up with 4 pawn islands and managed to win.

    Anyway, I really wish my opponent hadn't messed up there, it would be fun to play that game out to the bitter end.

    it's a game that's characterized and actually over by a blunder (I don't mean the last fork). I don't find those games interesting.

    Good point. Thanks for the input! Would you mind pointing out some blunders? (I don't have a decent of a chess computer like frtiz)
