First rated chess loss


  1. i think rook takes is trouble too. 25. ... Rxd3 26. Nd5 and now the knight is cut off from the defense by the queen and he is threatening Nf6+ to boot!

    I liked 21. ... Qxd3 a lot. I think you have a better position after that move, your c pawn is going to be a pain to defend if he doesn't liquify down but it looks like your men kind of get all up in his grill after that move. if he tries to liquify everything you are good: 21 Qb2 Qd2 22. QxQ RxQ 23. Rd1 Red8 24. Rxd2 Rxd2 25. Rd1 Rxd1 26. Nxd1 and now you are going to shuffle your king over to the middle of the board, eventualy play c5 and get a guaranteed passed pawn and have a better game. Also his queenside pawns can get a little tasty if he tries to get too cute.

  2. Ah, I didn't think of 21. ... Qxd3. Very interesting. Thanks for taking a look! :)
