Apr-11-07  Knight13: Albin Countergambit has a reputation for being a bad opening... But...

V Neverov vs R Strohhaeker, 2007

Jun-05-07  Silverstrike: White: John Calder
Black: Julius Schwartz

I'm fairly convinced I had the advantage in this game, but I didn't exploit it. My idea behind 25...Ng4 was 26.fxg4 Rxe2 27.Qxe2 d3+ but as I came back to the board I realised that 26...Rxe2 would fail to 27.Qf5+ (He would have still ended up with more material than I had he taken the rook, as eventually happened in the game). I believe the game is won for him at the end, I was very lucky to escape with a draw.

Jun-05-07  MaxxLange: I agree, White looks much better in the diagram. He has some discomfort due to the pin, but can't he just play Kg2 (to break the pin and guard against ...Rf3), then Rcb4, Rb7, and push the a-pawns?
Jun-05-07  Silverstrike: <MaxxLange> That seems to be one of many ways to win the diagramed position. It does indeed look won for white.
Jun-06-07  MaxxLange: Fritz 10 likes Rc3 or even Rb3 - Black cannot hold that pawn, and it falls with check and with defense of the e3 Knight on the 3rd rank.

If my move, 1. Kg2, is played, then Fritz says 1...Re8 2. Kf3 Rf8+ 3. Nf5 and White is still winning

He may have gotten nervous, playing without a Queen, or seen some kind of ghost. You psyched him out, playing with confidence even after your blunder.
