Some more games

I'm quite pleased with both of these.

I should really have taken on a6 and then brought the knight to e6. I thought I was in time trouble here, but I had an extra hour :oops:.

We were due to play a league game for Metropolitan, but our opponents didn't turn up, so we played this game. I ended up losing on time, but it was thoroughly enjoyable :D. I think I should have played g4 after she'd played Rg5. Also, I looked over the game a bit with a work colleague (who's around 180, I think) and he suggested instead of 15. b4, I could have gone Bg5 and then tried to aim for a knight on f5 (via h4). Also, instead of 14. Nbxd4, there might have been Nfxd4 but maybe Black has Qh4 (my colleague suggested that).

It's good that you play for a club with an established ladder tournament. Quite beneficial when starting out in league chess.

In the first game, you have already pointed out that you should have took on a6, and with both of your rooks and your queen attacking the a6 square I agree. I would say as well in the first game your knight was on an excellent e6 square. (This is usually the case when knights go onto a square diagionally in front of the pawn.) It can't be attacked by any pawns (the d and f pawns are already at least level with it) there are no knights, and the dark squared bishop is not going to take a knight on a white square. I don't think I would have took the bishop on g7.
