After a series of rapid trades, black did not notice my queen was pointed right at black's rook. Black took my knight and I got a free rook. Black did what I used to be guilty of, which I call the Video Game Mode. It is not a real term but I use that term when I kept thinking this was a video game that required an immediate response. I would forget that this game can be slowed down and I was allowed to think over my options. My knight had no safe squares if black moved the rook. I would have to grab the B pawn so I could get something for my knight. I celebrated with snickerdoodle cookies! chess food cookies
