Another Win with Black

Black Win

Late last night my opponent playing White resigned after my Bishop pinned his Rook to his Queen with 48...Bd4.

Throughout our endgame my Black army had been harassing his King mercilessly while whittling away his pieces. At game's end his King was practically defenseless and threatened by many of my men. And he was about to lose his last remaining Rook. He was right to resign when he did.

The final position of our pieces is above, and our full move record is below:

1. e4 d6 2. d4 a6 3. g3 g6 4. Bg2 Nf6 5. Ne2 Bg7 6. O-O O-O 7. Be3 b5 8. Qd2 Ng4 9. h3 Nxe3 10. Qxe3 Nc6 11. c3 Bb7 12. a4 e5 13. axb5 axb5 14. Rxa8 Qxa8 15. d5 Na5 16. b4 Nb3 17. Nd2 Nxd2 18. Qxd2 c5 19. bxc5 dxc5 20. Nc1 h5 21. Nb3 c4 22. Nc5 Qc8 23. d6 Bf6 24. Rd1 Qxc5 25. Qb2 Rd8 26. d7 Bc6 27. h4 Rxd7 28. Re1 Rd6 29. Qc2 b4 30. cxb4 Qxb4 31. Rb1 Qc5 32. Bf1 Rd4 33. Rb8+ Kg7 34.

And the adventure continues.
