In a blitz game last night, I was handed a gift by my opponent. I was no better in this game. Alas, my opponent was certain that he had a clear win and missed the critical move here. Twelve moves later, I checkmated him with two queens.
White to move
Had my opponent found the correct move here, I almost certainly would have missed my only chance to stay in the game.
