Napoleon Bonaparte liked his Knights. I love mine.

It is obvious to me that masters can find beautiful sequences of mating nets and/or lock you completely out of the game. For books, people, and things encouraging the Bishop pair I love my Knight pair. The missed checkmate sequence sacrificing my Queen is also lovely.

I'm posting this for people to learn. This isn't a troll topic, one that patronizes, or something unrelated to betting better. Since this game is also fun because Black isn't totally locked out. A less experienced player than myself might have gave Black more chances.

I'm White winning by checkmate or forced loss of material.

It is a good game, well played. Black's problems started with the passive move 10...Qc7. The major white advantage was complete control over the center with the pawn pair e5-d5.
