    I suppose I could post one of my few wins.

    I think I will. I was wondering where you believed my opponent made the horrible move that brought the house of cards tumbling down. I suppose even more interesting to me is where I made a horrible move that could have brought the cards tumbling down.

    Three strikes and I'm done. Had a game with comments, but it won't post.

    This game.

    In the orginal note you had in the notes after move 16.
    (smiley faces symbols screw up the PGN Thingy Thing)
    That is all I removed and it works.

    Eladar - Jans26 RHP 2013 Game 10098574

    Black to play.


    Black can win a piece here with 24....Nb8.
    Instead he played 24...Nc5 and went on to lose.

    Backward knight moves are tough to spot sometimes. I know from painful experience.

    Thanks, obviously I missed that. I'm glad my opponent missed it too!

    Thanks for letting me know about the smiley. Any comments on the game I posted?

    lol, all my comments are a move behind!
