Re: kamus - vs TheChesser (analysis) [14:25]
i am sorry to hear that you had some problem concentrating during your game
, that probably was the main reason why you did not do so well during it, maybe next time you would do better
Thanks for the analysis, it was a quite interesting game to look at
For the opening, you were indeed correct about me not seeing much about the morra gambit, and that is also the main reason why i declined it, the probability of attacks quickly made me hesitate to capture the c-pawn. Instead, I decided to go with a line that should not be common (I guessed during the game due to its appearance). Of course, educational because i did not want to fall to far behind in the opening. The undermining of my central pawns was very successful for you, I believed they were quite weak and decided to give up to protect them and tried to get a faster development preparing for an attack.
About the idea of castling in this game, as you said, i agree that castling queen-side would have been a much better choice because it gets away from all the potential threats from everywhere. If i was you, however, i would probably castled king-side as well, the main reason is because the c pawn looks quite weak and c file is half open. Still, you tried your best to answer my threats.
For the move Qd3, i feel a bit sorry for your mis-concentration during the game, as i was watching the other video you made during the game, i hear silence. Maybe some paper rattling, not sure. Those gave me a signal of you were quite unfocused during the game, it must have been a bad day for you
, i am sorry about that.
In this video, you questioned about why i did not capture the b pawn. The reason was, since I already started my attack, and I did not want to get to the endgame because you had a passed d pawn, I decided to go for a harder push and try to force you to play some inaccurate moves (because of the amount of calculation needed), i also pushed a little bit on time to make you have even less time to think, it has worked a few times, so i chose to try this strategy again. However, this is not recommended due to the chance of YOU making a mistake instead.
So that is also why i did not capture the knight on e2, exchanging a rook for two knights. I did not want an endgame where you have a passed pawn, that makes me nervous and gives you some chances to win. Of course i did not want that to happen because i do not believe in my endgame skills and instead believe in my middle game, plus i had much more time than you did, i decided to push on and go for the all-in push.
Thank you very much for letting me finish the game, that is something i would never bother to do, from that i can tell you are very friendly to others and let them to see their success. This is something i learned from this video, normally i would just resign immediately instead of what you did.
Thank you very much for the analysis, good luck in the future!
