    I loved this game. Although it was against a 1300-1400 rating strength, I thought it was a beautiful way to win the game. You must look at all the different lines though. I trap his Queen and set up a knight sack to pin his Queen initially. Then, the game ends with a fork to boot.

    Yes, indeed Ragnorak! Overlooked that one. I was simply trying to trade off the rooks. But, yes, that fork would work, too. There are a lot of tactical ideas I did not probably use. But, I did find some of them. The game would have been even better with that fork though, I have to admit. Thanks for insight Ragnorak.


    p.s. I also saw that 24. Qb5+ also pins the knight to the rook for icing on the cake. But, that idea is useless when he's already in check in the first place. It just looks a little better though. But, hey, I didn't do such a bad job all the way around. The most difficult move I found I believe by playing Nf6.

    Nice, If i was a sub and could give rec's you would get mine. I don't think thats a game to be proud of. Its like stealing candy from a baby. You gotta do it, but you can't be proud of it.

    Yeah, I know. But, I just thought it was aesthetically appealing is all. Some beautiful tactical flurries in other words. I am not saying he was necessarily that good of a player though. But, it sort of reminds you of how Morphy treated amateurs. Just because they are weaker, doesn't meant you can't enjoy the kill.

    Your comment was truly reflective of your rating at present and most likely your 1200 chess vision in terms of trading bishop for Queen. The idea was that the Queen was trapped, and he had to take the bishop. Now, are you going to pay me some money for this instructional information, trallphaz? Good grief! You remind me of the guy who comes along when you and your other 1500 friends are playing some chess, and you (rated around 1100) are trying to laugh or say: "You had that won man!! Look! you could have taken his Queen!" But, lo and behold, both of us tend to ignore you because we know that you DO NOT KNOW that an interference tactic gave way to an inactive rook that could have protected the pawn from advancing to c8=Q and checkmating the King! And, that by taking the queen, you would be mated in return. Hypothetically speaking of course. Okay, class is over grandmaster.
