    Just finished a blitz game, thought i'd share as the finish is pretty sweet. 😀

    Good. Playing through it I shouted 'Ra1+ and Bxc2.'

    His c3 here:


    Evenfor blitz was an awful move inviting a pawn storm.
    0-0-0. was better with a developing plan of Ne2 and Bc3.

    Nice play. Killer B's lived up to their name.

    The move that surprised me was white's a3, when he could have developed the K-side by Nf3.

    Yes there are quite a few errors by white in this game. I think my opponent was either not familiar with the general strategy of playing opposite side castling or simply forgot that my main idea is naturally going to be a pawn expansion on the queenside. 12.Bxe5 is a mistake i feel, white should regroup and play 12.Be2. Exchanging his black bishop for a knight leaves the black squares horribly weak around his King. Also 13.Bc4 is a horrible move, just inviting 13..b5. The game is effectively lost at that point..

    A game worthy of GM Edvins Kengis. Very nice!
