I do not mean to pry, but you don't by chance happen to have six fingers on your right hand?

I suppose you're talking to KB ?? I can't quite catch the idea - though he is a stickler for protocol.

Hmm - our first game was just a slow strangling really, after my inaccurate opening :(

rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/4P3/8/PPPP1PPP/RNBQKBNR b KQkq - 0 1

Fingers counted carefully. Actually some friends of ours who recently reproduced had a child born with two thumbs, and they're not both Tasmanians so the explanation is not what you might be thinking. :eek:

White to move.

In my experience, PGN viewer doesn't like line breaks in annotation much.

Thanks for the game.

For some reason I didn't look at Qh6 in that position much, though I did consider it in other lines.

I thought I had a stronger position earlier, around move 13 or so, with the bishop pair and pressure against c3, but I think I must have played it wrong as you seemed to improve after that. I guess I was a bit too ambitious trying to advance on both wings and act in the centre too. Maybe I should have left the h-pawn on h6.

Yes - your bishop pair were very good. Well played.
After overlooking 23. ... Ba6 , i knew i could have saved my rook with 24. b4, but knew my position would have been awful, and your bishops would have cleaned up eventually.
I never saw the best line ( [Toga II 1.3.1] 12:-0.97 24.b4 axb4 25.cxb4 Bxb4 26.Rc1 Bc5 27.Rfe1) which would have kept me in the game

Yes that's true it does save the exchange, though I would be quite happy as black here.
