That graphic was pretty win, even if we did lose ;)

And I think for the next game, perhaps keep a moves list in the OP?

I think my biggest mistake there was to actually capture the pawn at A4 with the queen at one point. The queen was in a much better position at A5. Should instead have captured the pawn at D3 with the rook, and then captured the pawn at F3 with the bishop (The knight being locked in place at that point due to the queen's position), with the follow up hopefully being to capture the rook at D1 with the bishop. The bishop would be a mistake to capture with the king as well at that point, while not technically defended in any way, moving the king to that position would've allowed us to capture the knight at D2 with the queen, resulting in a checkmate.

Of course the various steps of that could've been countered in a number of ways too.

White's Queen was at b1 at the time, defending d3.

a5 is a way better spot for the Queen than a4 though, definitely.

The game was long past lost at this point (down a piece and 3 pawns), but the only try left at that point was Bh5, threatening to take the f3 pawn with the Bishop - the Knight can't recapture because the Rook goes to c1 or b3, winning Queen and 2 Pawns for Rook and Bishop. At that point, Black is still technically "down" material but with that little left on the board the Queen just goes on a rampage and there isn't much that White can do to stop her (White's Bishop is awful and might as well not even exist).

Bh5 is easy to defend, of course, but it's really the only shot at creating something from that position.

Right, now I remember why I didn't do that. Still not the wisest alternative move, but I suppose moving the queen to a bad position is better than trading a rook for a pawn.
