I'm getting back into chess after a hiatus of 8+ years, so I'm a bit rusty. This position is from a game I just played online.
I'm white and it's my move. I threaten black's rook and knight with
Qd5, and this is how it played out. I'm amazed it worked in my favor, because as far as I can tell, instead of
3. - a6, he could have moved
3. - Qf6, which would save him after a few exchanges. Am I missing something, or did he just make the wrong move?
EDIT: Removed irrelevant sentence about Kf7.
