Another Win With Black

Win with Black

Today I learned that I won another Correspondence Chess with Black. Yesterday my opponent playing the White pieces resigned after my 28... Qd4d3 fork put his King in check while attacking his undefended Bishop at the same time.

After his next move to protect his King I'd take his Bishop, of course, and my material advantage then would be even stronger. Checkmating the White King would happen quickly once I activated my other major pieces. He was right to resign the game when he did.

The position of pieces at game's end is posted above, and our complete move record is below.

1. d4 d5 2. e3 a6 3. f4 Ng8f6 4. Ng1f3 Nb8c6 5. c3 g6 6. Bf1d3 Bf8g7 7. O-O O-O 8. Nf3e5 Nc6xe5 9. fxe5 Nf6e4 10. Qd1f3 Ne4g5 11. Qf3xd5 Qd8xd5 12. c4 Qd5d8 13. Nb1c3 b6 14. Nc3e4 Ng5xe4 15.

Ra1e1 Qd4d3 0-1

And the adventure continues.
