Comeback from a queen down in 2000 vs 2000 classical

Weird comeback for a 15+15 game imo. Game lasted almost a full 1 hour so moves weren't fast. No hanged pieces on white side to lose material back, just missed some tactical ideas. Has some interesting moments like mate threat on move 40 and 43 in very atypical positions

There is no such thing as a "comeback" in chess. Your opponent blew it. There was nothing at all you could do until and unless your opponent did something incredibly stupid.

In response to the outrageous form title Chuck quickly started typing a witty retort. "There is no such thing as a "comeback" in chess. Your opponent blew it. There was nothing at all you could do until and unless your opponent did something incredibly stupid." (Chuck 2019). Proud of his work, Chuck decided to play race of kings, neglected to give any actual advice on the game rookssaor asked about. The third person to comment was acting as a narrator to the ordeal out of sheer boredom. Needless to say, they also left no good advice on the game.

I'm sure you're very proud of yourself, but "you won because your opponent did something stupid" is in fact feedback. It may not be good feedback, but it's feedback. Certainly more feedback than your post. Also, feedback wasn't actually asked for and is not the title of this particular sub-forum.

just to be clear.. I'm not really looking for a game analysis as to fix my mistakes on this one

Lesson here is "classical" is a different beast compared to bullet (my favorite). Classical is kind of intense all the way, relaxing when one is winning leads to all sorts of trouble.

So yeah, kudos for fighting it out even when a Q down.

I remember one time I was playing a blitz game. I had less than 5 seconds on the clock. The position was quite tricky, although winning for my opponent, something like queen against rook. Then, he took some 2 seconds and blundered. With only a few seconds on the clock, I immediately spotted how to win. It was a combination just like this one. I would upload the game, but for one I cannot find it and for another I don't fancy showing games that have nothing to show but for an illusive winning combination.

Btw, very accurate game, in most of its parts and really fighting spirit. The best part is where from a totally losing position you accually win...
