Chess is a demanding mistress...
Nicely played and taken well advantage of your opponent's mistakes.
Thanks Chesstiger. It helps when your opponent makes mistakes :)
Its like a strange version of the Colle Koltanowski.
Pawn Shaman: Funny you should say that, I had no clue :) While I have a general idea of the concepts behind some major openings, I don't really study any opening in depth. (I'll do that once I hit 2000 or so.) Pretty much all I try to do is play moves that seem sound to me.Just checked out your blog & added it to my sidebar.
Objectively speaking 12.Bxh7+ Kh8! saved Black, so 12.Nxd4 was better, winning a piece. But nice idea anyway!
Aziridine: Absolutely - 12.Nxd4 was better, winning a piece (or the queen if he takes). But hey, this was a 3 minute blitz game and sometimes I play something like 12.Bxh7 just for shock value and to see if I can't find a mate somewhere rather than just getting the piece. As Tal said - sac first, calculate later :)
Just wondering why not 15.Qxd8.
