Presented for your Consideration
Presented for your consideration, the following is not an example of perfect play or dry opening theory but a tale. A tale of two knights Cratercat and Takchess meeting on the virtual 64 and the struggle that ensues. It is a tale of overly aggressive play, inactive pieces, a wild save ones life king dash across the board , a pawns lust to expand, frantic attempts to kill or be killed, unfortunately for your favorite blogger it is also a tale of missed opportunity....... In both these diagrams black to move wins according to Fritz in a mating net.
