You had a possibility to end the game on move 21 as it is forced mate if you play 21.Bh7+ Kh8 22.Bg6+ Kg8 23.Qh7#. Otherwise quite nice game. I don't know if this is just me but there was something wrong with the audio.

Thanks for your comment. My audio is not so good, because I am stuck with my Desktop mic, I will definitely get a Headset before making any more videos. I just wanted to participate in the contest for fun. But I hope you can understand most of it?

Edit: If people feel these videos should be in the intermediate section, please move them. I just posted them here without giving it any thought.

It was a mate in 2 at 21. Qh7+ Kf7 22. Bg6#

After that, I spent the rest of the game in agony thinking that you were going to find a way to lose it. :)

Haha, yes, it was close at the end. His doubled rooks were a bit scary. And there are two ways to mate?! I didn't realize that.

I saw the mate at 21 also and assumed you had planned it. I thought, "Sweet! A Greek Gift mate with a knight as the bait instead of a bishop." Anyway, glad you won. :D
