I was wrong
I was able to reconstruct one of the positions from last saturday. I just grabbed a pawn (with white) from b5 and my opponent played Ra8-c8. Mousetrapper was right: there IS a winning tactic. Solution[1.Bf6 g5 2.Qh3 Rg6 3.Rxh7 will do the job .]
These were the kind of positions I got in 4 times out of 4 last saturday. Still I got only 2 points from it due to time trouble. What can I learn from this?
I have great difficulty to visualize these clogged positions. CTS hasn't this kind of positions. So I must use a different problemset and try to train this.
But is my conclusion right, can white head for a winning endgame too?
BTW my opponent sacrificed a knight and got away with eternal check due to time trouble at both sides.
