House Game before the next tourney

Since the women's tournament ended a week early, I got a house game tonight, and it was a crazy one! I was pretty much lost over and over, but got a draw... he really shouldn't have given me a draw even where we ended, but I'm not complaining. I really enjoyed the game, though; very exciting. :)

  2. If I were white I would make a different move with the knight for #24, perhaps check on b5, black king would be more trapped this way and then the white queen can come down to the 6th/7th to connect with knight depending where black king goes. But what do I know? I am just a beginner rookie at chess :) :) . Hugs. Irina.

  3. At the end white only has to capture any pawn with his knight, then the king and pawn ending is won.

  4. Yeah, although I was doing my best to trap his knight and try to draw it, I was pretty sure he wouldn't have to work hard for the endgame to be won. I think if he had any idea how endgame weak I am, he wouldn't have been nervous to play it out. :)
