White's Game-Losing Mistakes

White's game-losing mistakes appear to be ...

  • 3. d5, too many Pawn moves, neglecting Piece development.

    3. Nc3 would have prevented 4...Ne4, which enabled Black's dark-Bishop to Checkmate White on only the 5th move of the game (5...Bxf2#).

  • 4. Bg5, failing to spot the growing threat of Black's dark-Bishop and active Knight. Playing 4. Nc3 would have stalled ...Nf6-e4.

  • 5. Bxd8, White fails to spot the irrelevance of Black's Queen. But, it's too late and Black wins with 5...Bxf2#.
