  1. There's that great laughter, again! You won the game, no matter the outcome.
    # < Good Laughter

    good game, too!

  2. The major mistake by KC was 24. Rxc8+ after which White is defenseless to the mating threats by Black, with the rook and queen (after 24. … Rxc8 25. Qxa4) lined up on the White queen. Fritz recommends 24. Bh6 with advantage to Black.

    Very enterprising play by KC against a GM and all was going OK until move 24. A shame that KC did not think more rationally about move 24. Rxc8.

  3. Good try, you just don't have enough time to think some of these things through…

  4. Fun game KC.

    I think 22 Nf5 might have some mileage, it gains a tempo at least in order to get your chance at his king…

  5. its a trickier position than you let on, Bh6 is not so easy to find at blitz time controls

  6. If the autopairing presented to KC every game a Grandmaster opponent, then KC would get used to playing GM's and cease to panic.

    Kingscrusher is in the same league as his GM opponents otherwise he would not be paired with them.

  7. GG as always KC. You've beaten Yardbird before, and the other 2 games I've seen you play him you always play very well.

    But I was just wondering if there was anything else that could have been done on move 25 to avoid the Checkmate…, or is it inevitable? Obviously takeing the knight off with the Queen is no good : (

    Possibly Rc2, if he takes with his rook(i think he has to), you take with king on C2. Then his Qb2 check is no longer mate? Just a thought likely wrong as I'm a beginner.

  8. According to IM Jovanka Houska castling queenside as black becomes more attractive because black is no longer bothered by the cramping effect of the h pawn when it is on h4 instead of h5. The upside for white is that he isn't bothered with the h5 weakness later in the game.
