In an effort to play a more solid game, I took my time in thinking and ended up with 42.7 seconds left on my clock while black had 3 minutes and 14.5 seconds. Fortunately, I was able to put black in a dilemma because I was going to make a queen. Black did a good job of stopping that but then rage quit. I thought that was odd because black could win on time since I cannot move fast enough to mobilize a victory in 42.7 seconds. I celebrated with corned beef hash with poached eggs and potatoes! #fo
I think black thought they had me in a jam because they were going to make a queen. If I tried to block it, the bishop would take my rook. Black did not see that from this position I want black to make a queen. Black did make a queen and I took it, where black responded by taking my rook and I took black's rook. In the end, black traded me their pawn and rook for my rook. Thanks for the free pawn! I celebrated with a croissant! #food
