123 ( +1 | -1 ) Analyzis required.This is a game which just ended, between me and sir_durs8. I'll make notes beneath the game with some general thoughts. Comments will be much appreciated. board #4341625
11. ... Be7? I feel this is a losing move, in a GMgame that chessbase has Qe7 was played, it ended in a win for white. 13. Qc4! I'm certain this is a won position for white. I didn't find the best continution obviously (still can't). 15. Nf5+ Maybe this was THE error. I overlooked the clever Nxc2+ with Ne3 as following. 17. Ne6? Seals the deal. Everything after this point is just me desperatly trying to find a repeatable draw somewhere, but with accurate play I know that it is futile. --------------- I'd like someone to use a program to see if there really was a mate or if my feelings deceived me and also, if not, make some specified comments about the further development of the game. Values at some of the moves from chessbase or whatever would also be nice, but not a "must".
128 ( +1 | -1 ) olean_don, I don't think [13. Ngf7] would work since taking the rook means hanging the other knight after the queen has moved out of the way. Playing [Nxh8] afterwards would trap the knight eventually leaving white a peice down, though the position still looks strong.
Brilliance, regarding the moves you mentioned, Fritz says. 11...Be7 was a mistake, it gives white the advantage of 3.90 pawns up from 0.59 pawns. It doesn't say much else but I guess it is simply because the bishop is pinned, the threat of the knight fork and mate after Qc4 means the eventual loss of blacks Knight.
13. Qc4 was the best move given by Fritz, like I mentioned above double attack on the knight and a mate threat wins material (though I'm sure you know this!).
14...Kg7 at this point Fritz says you have a mate in 11 possible with 15.Nf5+ being the correct continuation.
17. Ne6? was the error, it puts you from a mate in 9 position to behind by 4.66 pawns according to fritz. The mate from move 17 should have followed: 17. d3 Ne3+ 18. Bxe3 Qg8 19. Ne6+ Qg5 20. Bxg5 fxg5 21. h4 dxe6 22. hxg5+ Kxg5 23. Qg7+ Kf4 24. Qg3#
