Another Black Win

Black Win

Offline life has kept me too busy to talk about my chess lately, but I have been playing everyday. At the moment I have 12 active correspondence chess games in progress, which is just about as much as I can handle right now given the increased pace of my life away from the board.

This is one game I won recently with Black when White resigned after my 51...e2. There was nothing White could do to prevent one of my pawns from advancing to the last rank and promoting to a Queen. Checkmating the White King then would be inevitable.

The position of pieces at game's end is above, and our full move record is below:

1. d4 d5 2. f4 Nc6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. e3 e6 5. Bd3 g6 6. O-O Bg7 7. g3 Nb4 8. c3 Nxd3 9. Qxd3 O-O 10. a4 a5 11. b4 axb4 12. cxb4 b6 13. b5 Ne4 14. Nc3 c5 15. dxc5 bxc5 16. Ne5 c4 17. Qc2 Bb7 18.
