Inspired by my friend’s blog, I joined chess.com in Facebook. I played a few blitz games with random people online. I found playing live human is more fun than playing computer because computer does not make blunder moves. My record is straight lost so far, this is the closest game that I have very a good chance to win. I lost the game from a very stupid blunder. I am playing black
I did not use the standard response to king pawn opening. Just want to try something new.
White did not push queen pawn as expected. I made a bad move. Knight is exposed to the pawn in f6. If the white pawn push to f5, it will be protected by the Knight
White develop the other Knight. I moved the queen pawn to clear the way for the bishop
White push queen pawn. I push king pawn to invite a gambit.
White pushed the queen pawn and eying at my Knight. I lost a tempo by retreat the Knight.
White push a lone Knight. I move the Bishop to chase it
White push bishop to target a1. I move pawn to c6 targeting d5. Actually moving b6 to protect against bishop is a better idea
White take a1 with Knight. I would be in more trouble if he take c6 first or take a1 with a Bishop. His blunder allow me to exchanged a side pawn with a center pawn and his Knight is trapped by my Queen.
I wonder white try attack with the other Knight or merely put the Knight there to protect the e4 pawn. I should have move Knight to c6 and the white Knight is dead. Instead, I push my center pawn to pressure the white bishop and estimate the center. I think I opened more front line than I can handle.
White Bishop attach f7, I protect it with a Bishop
White Bishop check, I moved the Bishop to defense.
White retreat the the e2 Bishop, I exchanged a Bishop with a Bishop. I should have exchange the Knights instead and move the side pawn to center.
White Knight take my bishop and escaped. I moved h pawn to chase the other Knight away.
White Knight retreat. I took the unprotected pawn in the middle with my Knight. Looks like I controlled the center board.
White Queen chase my Knight. I exchanged the Knight with the Bishop.
White finished the exchange, I initiated Queenexchange
White finished the exchange and my Rook is chasing the Knight.
Knight check. My King moved away.
White push the Pawn to chase my Rook. I made a Blunder by moving the Rook to a8
White didn’t see my blunder and draw back the Knight. I have leave the Knight wandering around for too long. I should have plan about end game after the Queen exchange. I moved the Knight to threaten the unprotected b pawn.
White move a pawn to protect b pawn. I moved Bishop to bring it to front line.
White castled. I moved the f pawn, but I should have moved the bishop to gain tempo.
Fire power is building up at d4
White moved the pawn to put more fire power at d4. I can’t exchange the c3 pawn or the Rook will have a check. I tried to match the other pawn to push forward
White can’t move away any firepower on d4, so he match the other pawn. I should have move away the King or invite a pawn exchange. But I try to chase away his Knight for no reason. In end game, the leading side should initiate exchange to widen the leadership.
White seems to make a suicide move and I exchanged a Bishop for a Knight.
White’s King defense is broken. Looks like I am going to win and I become careless. I wasted a move to use the Rook to pin the white King. I should have moved my King away from White’s Rook pin.
Both side matched pawns. Again I should chase away the White Knight.
White initiated exchange of pawns.
Finish the exchange and white now has 2 isolated pawns. I pushed the g pawn.
White push the f pawn pass my g pawn. I should have keep marching the g pawn. The g pawn is safe since it is protected by the Rook. Instead I moving my King and let Black fork my King and Castle. The tide is turned against me.
White capitalize my blunder. I should have exchanged that Knight a long time ago.
Exchange of pieces
White want to march the a pawn. I should keep marching the g pawn.
Why would I march the e pawn?
I am losing the march.
38.axb7 e2 39.Rfb1 Nc6 40.Ra8 Rxa8 41.bxa8=Q
I accept my fate and resign after the White got a Queen.
