Internet Game Analysis #3

This was sort of an interesting game for me because I haven't often played against the Lopez opening. Everything was going good pretty well the both of us developing our pieces. Until at move 14 my opponent playing White got a little greedy and stole a Pawn. This opened up the way for me to win a piece. By taking the Pawn he put his Bishop in harms way. It was not as protected as he thought because  after 14...Bxc4 Black's bishop is hanging! After that it was just forced trading and pressure, pressure, pressure! A fairly standard uninteresting finish to the game followed, White's queen trying to gobble some Pawns put him a tad off side.

Lesson to be learnt: Don't leave a piece hanging! Pretty obvious but important, maybe all those Chess tactic puzzles are starting to pay off!
