my second training game

i played here with the white pieces.

1. d4 d5

2. c4 dxc4

3. e4 Nc6

playing e4 here is considered aggressive, but this was my preparation at the time, I always wanted to play this variation and this was the first time!. today my preparation is to play d3. you will see that over time my play becomes more positional although today I am trying to take the initiative

4. Nf3 Bg4

here black is putting pressure on the d4 pawn, if I play a waiting move - nc3 i will lose the d4 pawn by bxf3,qxf3/gxf3 and nxd4, here I needed to get rid of the pressure and decided to play d5

5. d5 Ne5

6. Be2 Nxf3+

7. Bxf3 Bxf3

8. Qxf3 e5

9. dxe6 fxe6

then I couldn't understand this positional mistake, some players might think that when you can take an passant you have to , but you don`t , here white holds a big center and he doesn't want to open it, he has more space and he is not worried. although here actually taking is the best move. when you take your opponent as 2 options - 1. take back and have an extra pawn but weaken your king or 2. to not take back and be down equal. in this case his decision was wrong

10. O-O Qf6

11. Qh5+ Qg6

12. Qb5+ c6

13. Qxb7 Rd8

14. Qxc6+ Rd7

15. Qxc4 Bd6

16. Nc3 Ne7

here i was already winning but my opponent decided to continue playing although he was down material.

17. Rd1 O-O

18. e5 Qf5

19. Ne4 Qxe5

20. Nxd6 Rxd6

21. Be3 Rxd1+

22. Rxd1 Qxb2

23. Qxe6+ Kh8

here my opponent did not see the tactic and after trading queens he surrendered. he has now lots of problems firstly he is down material - 2 pawns and a bishop, i have back rank mating ideas and it might take me time but i will win this game eventually.

24. Qxe7 Qf6

25. Qxf6 Rxf6

26. Bxa7

if you want to learn the queens gambit go to our opening theory and learn it there.
