This was really a tough-ish game. I played black and it is part of a knockout tourney I’m playing and I really tried my best to play a good game….My opponent is a bit stronger than I am and I really must say, since I’m playing friendlies against players with ratings between 1800 and 2500, my chess has really improved a lot…In this game you will once again see how useful it is to have a Knight…I just LOVE them!! You will see in move 16 how I sacrificed my Bishop – instead of my Knight…as I really do like Knights more…I’ve said that in a previous game-post too! You can just look at the end-position, where my opponent resigned, WHY I LIKE my Knights!! At move 21 he missed the opportunity to capture my Rook, but perhaps he didn’t want to! From move 37, this game was really tight! Move 39…..I think he tried me out for a draw, but I didn’t fall for it after I realised what he was trying! Move 44! A real blunder, I think! Move 56 and on…very tight! I even offered my Queen in this game with move 59 when I checked him! Enjoy it!
