Weak In The Knees In Time-Pressure

Round 2

Going along with the theme from last week,   I offered a draw after 33…Ne3+, knowing Black is winning but with 2 min 6 sec remaining after the move.  Luckily, Daniel declined my offer, but then blundered later by offering  a queen trade in a 0.0 position.  I missed a bunch of opportunities there, seeing …a5 a lot but too wary to pull the trigger on the increment.

  1. Congratulations! Did you miss 50… Rc3 or 53… Rc3? It looks dangerous for White.
    Will comment in detail later.

  2. The …Rd3, …Qf3+, …Rd1 mate. I didn’t find that until you mentioned this, and it actually took me a couple of minutes to find, so I was not going to see it in time-pressure. 😦
