I had no idea what to do from here. I ended up giving away two pawns and resigned because being down a pawn that late in the game is difficult to come back. @eternal mentioned I keep my rooks passive which was a problem here too. I cheered myself up with a smoked salmon sandwich! food
I swear one of these days I'll re-learn how to play chess just to know what you're talking about.
to join the conversation.
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
