NIH Ladder

I played in the NIH ladder tonight, and won a lucky game. I didn't calculate thoroughly enough, and paid the price in an opening which demands exactness from both sides. As a result I was just down a piece, but luckily he missed a tactic and I won.

Actually interestingly, I didn't know my opponent at all, and assumed that he was high rated (maybe an expert or high "A" player) before the game. I don't know why, so I played the game with this assumption. Luckily I don't think I play differently at all based on who I play. After the game when we were analyzing I realized that he wasn't looking at variations that I thought mattered, and was looking at useless variations, and I was right. It is sort of strange when you are analyzing with someone and during it you figure out that maybe he is weaker than you initially expected. I came home and looked up his rating, and sure enough I outrated him. Of course it could have been he was an expert and I was looking at worthless variations just as easily, but my feel in positions like the one on the board are fairly good I think, and it seemed like he far undervalued initiative and overvalued material. And looking at the lines that he was looking at, Fritz agrees with me. Just an interesting story, at least to me.

tricky game
the analysis covers most of it, but the thing to remember is to check that kind of sac (or any kind of tension) every move.

You'd be surprised to know (at least I was) that your ..Ne7 has been played before, as well as the later ..Ng6? (or maybe ..Ng6!? see below). The results were varied and surprising, the funniest of all being the following: (same as your game up to 10.. hxg4) 11. Ng5 Nf4 12. Qxg4 Qxg5 0-1

I thought White could escape with 13. f3, but it seems 13..Nh3+ is winning. (BTW, both W and B were over 2400)

The longest match to your game is up to and including 14..f6, but White then played 15. Bh4 and there followed 15.. Nf8 and ..g5. The bishop can't escape!

So, it could be that ..Ng6 isn't blundering a piece, but Tal-sacrificing it ;-))))

Well in that line f3 looks weak. Lets say he plays 16. Qg4 and then the queen trade will make f3 hang to the rook, so I think black is still better. But it is interesting.
