    My guess is you have black
    Anyway, nice win!

    One thing I would like to see is the ability to see other people's games but they are not working on the blitz site. WYSIWYG.

    I like the final position to this one.



    The black queen can't leave the e4 sqaure because Qe1+(or Qe2+) will lure her right back.




    24.Bg5 was what I had originally planned (and better), but the adventurous position drew my attention.

    26.Bd6 is outright bad because of 26. ... d4! (defending b7 and stopping Ng5 because of the mate on g2).

    For that reason, I should have played 26.Ng5 a move earlier.

    If you moved Ng4, wouldn't the queen just take the gift bishop? if the queen checks, the king has escape squares not covered by the bishop. Gets to f8,g8, h7 or some such?

    Ah, I see it now, if black takes the bishop, after the queen checks, black runs right into a knight-queen fork. Nevermind

    I assume you mean here:



    And now Ng5 (instead of the inferior Bd6)



    And now Qxf4



    Here Qe2+



    He must play Qe4 and lose his queen.



    Instead of that, Kd8 runs into Qe7 mate.



    Instead of Qe4 or Kd8, Kf8 runs into Qe7+.



    Kg8 Qxg7 mate



    You just needed to look a little bit deeper.

    Actually, come to think of it, Qe1+ may be better after all. (Substitute Qe1+ for Qe2+)

    The point being Qe1+ Qe4 Nxe4



    and after a recapture on e4 (say fxe4) there is Qb4 (a move not available after Qe2+)
