The move 12. Nh5, losing a knight, is what lost the game. The rest, as they say, is a matter of technique. If you thought that was a sound sacrifice then you need to study more openings and tactics. …

Do’h! Of course black can play for a win. This would be more slow positional play then by tactics, but with the extra pawn it should be a matter of technique as they say. I would look at doubling r …

Your best move is resign and start another game. If you insist on playing on the QxR on e1 is least worst. But after QxRwith check you will still lose the horsie, leaving you a Q and an exchange down. …

There is NO answer. It all depends on the exact position. You defend differently, then white will attack differently. The better move would be what worked best against the person you are playing. P …

After the recapture white moves his rook to f1 and then next move to the seventh rank (f7). [FEN "r3k3/p5R1/p1p4r/2bbp2p/8/P1N3KN/1P5P/R7 w q - 0 1"] 1. Nxd5 cxd5 2. Rf1 null 3. Rff7 Note that by …

Yes. It should be hard for white to win. Material is even. No obvious positional advantages. Why should you have an easy win? Black is threatening to win a pawn. You are going to lose at least …

Is it winnable? Maybe. Against a person that could happen. Against a good engine more unclear. The final result is past the horizon that people and likely machine can compute. I see white getti …

Win? What are you serious? This looks like a draw at best for white. You would have had to play a lot better a lot earlier for white to have chance to win. You were done when you lost that pawn a …

2000 rated player. I suspect a computer analysis would show you a number of moves that would differ from what you actually did. It might just be me but I would look at the moves 37. Rb3 or Rh3 to avoid the perpetual check. …

I would suggest to play over GM games from a book. It goes at your pace. Easy to see, no audio problems like so many videos have. Easy to go back if you want to see the last couple moves again. W …

Possibly is what my intuition says, but it would take a lot of analysis to know what best play result should be. OTOH with real people it could easily be a win if they have time pressure in a … tournament. Maybe even if not pressure just insufficient time to really do a full scale in depth analysis of all the nuances. If black takes the pawn and white exchanges B for N then we have a R+P …

Who is on move? If it is white to move this looks won for white. If it is black you need to get the king on the Qside to hold a draw. NOTE: human analysis not done by computer. It might be wrong but OTB that is what I expect to happen. …

No. Q+N can run rings around two rooks, especially passive ones like yours will be protecting , or trying to protect, your pawns.
