    Position from a game on another site that I lost--- J10 suggested an interesting move here I would have never thought about:




    Rc5!

    Um, c5 is occupied. You lost? Tell me you were Black.

    Rxc5!, dxc5, d6!, Qd7 (Qe6,Bd5), Bxe5 and black has the knight and a passed pawn for the rook as well as the bishop pair.

    I knew White was winning, but congrats. on the continuation. I was uncertain however, as it was said as Rc5 as opposed to Rxc5, and I thought the FEN was wrong.

    My mistake... I forgot to put the "x" in there to signify a capture... I thought it was just understood... I'll use it in the future, though!

    I was White in that game and goofed it later while still having the better position...


    This was an RHP game I lost as White vs. mark99 that I would have been material up if I could have seen approx. 13 moves ahead!




    Bxg7!



    Rare to see someone display their losses, don't you think?

    yes analysis of losses is good, but I usually don't share them unless I can't find a better continuation on my own.

    Bxg7, Kxg7 (nothing else is forcing enough that you can't save the bishop),
    Qg5+, Kh8, Qf6+, Kg8, Rd4
    at which point black can try
    h5?, Qg5+, Kh7, Qxh5+, Kg7, Qg5+, Kh7, Rh4#
    or
    Ne4, fxe4 when whites other rook is ready to be lifted (and he has regained the minor piece).

    If Bxg7 can force a win in that position I would like to see the line. I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just saying that I don't see it.

    My bad. The post prior to mine must have been written at the same time I was writing mine, as the one I quoted was the most recent post when I hit the reply button. Either that or I'm going blind.

    I'll bet on the latter
