This is chess and, as in life, things don't always go your way. I didn't play well in round one against my low-rated opponent. I will spare you the excuses like missing my son's soccer game.
White to move!
White is playing off his 10 second increment and play continued 1. Rxf5+? ( The best chance was rook down to the first rank to cut-off the Black King. ) Rxf5+? 2. Kxf5 Kh6 3. Kf6 Kh7 4. Kxf7 draw.
After 1.Rxf5? what does Black play? Hint: there are only so many good legal moves for Black.
