Since you have posted outside of Bates Motel I shall answer here.
The fact you won means there is nothing I can say about 4..Kd7?
you will take onboard.
This position has been seen just under 200 times.
With White winning the majority.
A few Black bright sparks have spotted the Knight fork on c7
and played Rb8.and fallen for the Boshop fork on c7.
Your 4...Kd7 has been seen 9 times before
with White winning 4, Black winning 4 and one draw.
The Black wins were dreadful with White either losing a
piece like they did in your game or failing to spot a
'combination' that a blind man could see.
Mikaere - scoop122 Game 2810498
White to play
White, as most weaker players do, panicked when faced
with a threat to their King, played c3 and eventually lost.
1.Rxd7+ mates Black (check all checks).
Back to 4...Kd7?
I cannot see a 100% tactical plus, though everything I do
that does not drop a peice looks good.
What would Morphy do?
Simple chess first and any good White player would simply
The threats on c7 can wait. White is going to develop and
then do some serious Kicking. Though there is nothing at wrong
with Bxc7 and Bg3.
In your game you missed a strong looking move. Black to play.
You played 22...Bf5 and subjected us to a 'watching paint dry' win.
22...Nxd4! looks better, theatening Bf5 as well as all kinds of nasties.
The way to battle out of that mess is, as someone suggested 4...e5
Most White's have now gone. 6.exf6 axb5 7.fxg7 Bxg7
That is not too bad for Black. Plenty of activity a few targets to hit.
I can cause osme trouble with that position.
you have too many games on the go and although I agree with
you crossing swords with players of a higher grade
you are going into these believing their every move.
Look at every move as though it was a blunder and examine it.
Of course with 20+ games on the go v reasonable players
this is not possible so the whole excercise is futile
because of your game load.
You walked into a Back Rank mate in Game 7656405
and in Game 7656401
here you (Black) to play.
Why did you not take the Knight?
You did you see: 11...BxN 12.Qg4+ Bg4 15. h4
And thought "Wow this guy is good the h-file is going to get
opened and I will be mated."
But 15...Nxe5 16.dxe5 Qxe5+ there is no White attack.
(15...Nxe5 16.Qg3 Qxc2 forces castles - no open h-file).
15...f5 also works. 16.Qg3 f4 17.Qg4 Nxe5.
I do not believe the White attack. In Blitz yes,
which is why it worked here.
Instead you played 11...Bxb4+ 12.c3 Nxd4?
brilliant. White took the Knight with his Queen ('thank you'😉
Sacced his a1 Rook and mated you rather clumsily.
(there was no need for him to sac the Knight).
