I Feel Good

... to quote singer James Brown. I received a gift in a recent blitz game.

White to Move

I was White and boldly took the Bishop with Qxd7. Black took the sacrifice (ouch!) ...Qxd7. Fork, fork,...

I assume that you're calling this a gift because when you went back and analyzed it you found out why Qxd7 was losing.
To Loomis: LOL, don't be so harsh, we are talking about blitz here:)
I'm having a hard time calculating this morning...loomis, are you suggesting that the line is something like Qxd7 Rxe5 winning the pawn on e2?
Sorry, I didn't mean to be harsh. :-)

Yes, I think that Qxd7 Rxe5 is winning for black. But mostly because black is already ahead a rook for a minor piece. So I guess Qxd7 isn't really a losing move, though trading pieces isn't usually in favor of the side that is behind.

On the other hand, since Qxd7 does have a trick to it, it can be worth playing in blitz, as KotS can tell you. :-)
...Qxd7 was a gift, plain and simple :-).

My initial Qxd7 wasn't exactly stellar, it's true. Fritz says f4 is even, a move I did not even look at.
fumbling is extremely constrained purposefullyCheapest wow gold although. in the event that my opponent is excellent with takedowns i'll reduced the posture as well as inform your ref i need top or bottom instead of position. however Buy rs gold
generally there arent numerous choices built at this deliberate (strategical) levels
