In a game of chess my opponent resigned after 18 moves. He was apricotshandy of Australia. In this game I played white. Here are the moves of the game with my commentary:
1. e4 e5
2. Nf3 d6
3. d4 exd
4. Bc4 h6
I decide to develop rather than capture the pawn. Black's move fails to develop a piece.
5. 0-0 Bd7
Black should develop a piece on the kingside so that he can castle quickly.
6. e4 dxe
My aim is to open the centre of the board.
7. Nxe5 Be6
8. Bxe6 fxe6
The black king is exposed.
9. Qh5+ Ke7
10. Qf7+ Kd6
11. Bf4 Nc6
12. Ng6+ Kd5
I use a discovered check to win the black rook on h8.
13. Nxh8 Nf6
14. Ng6 Nh5
15. Bxc7 Qg5
I win a pawn.
16. Qf3+ Kc5
17. Nxf8 Nf6
I win a piece. Black wants to capture my knight.
My knight check forks the king and queen, so black resigns.
I force an early resignation with my quick development and material advantage. Black makes a number of mistakes in the game. His most critical is probably Bd7. It fails to develop his kingside and keeps his king in the centre.
