Slippery Soap!

Here is a new game which almost slipped out of my hand again and again and again.


  1. I played a club game and made that same mistake as White (but still managed to win) against the Owen's Defense. You could have "saved" your Bh1 with ..g5, ..g4 at multiple points during the game.

  2. Yes, I thought so but I misscalculated that line OTB

  3. A messy game with lots of attacks and counterattacks, easily to make a mistake in such game. Lots of precise calculation required.

    Dont know the opening so no advice from me.

    13. ... 0-0 Can black not play Bg2 in that position?

    16. ... Rfe8+ Probably a better idea to have played Rae8+ so that the pin on the Nc6 is gone, 16. ... Rae8+ 17. Kf2 Re5 maybe?

    47. ... g1Q ??? 47. ... Rf1 !!! Pinning the knight.
