I played down in the U1600 section at a tournament this month and walked away with a perfect score. It amazes me when a beginner trying to improve studies advanced books like Art of Attack but neglects mastering basic tactics. Castles made of sand fall in the sea eventually.

  • Study tactics for at least 5-10 minutes daily or face the consequences.

    I like your opening idea a lot.  When I was first learning openings, I told him I dreamed up an opening with c4, a3, e3 and Nc3 so that I could slowly prepare b4 or d4, and he laughed.  He said that is part of the English.  Of course, I have not studied the English a lot, but you did well with the idea.  You ought to try the mirror cousin of the English sometime, the Bird!

    Dozy> Your "perfect score" reminds me of the perfect score I achieved in my first tournament -- six unblemished zeroes!

    lol. It's only because I played down. Next time I'll be in the U1900 and there's no way I'm getting a perfect score against that field.

    benws> why can't black just play 19...Kg7 or 19...Kh8?

    19...Kg7 (or 19...Kh8) 20.Nxe8+! Rxe8 21.Qb3!

    benws> what's wrong with the immediate 18 Nf6+?

    That's not bad... it wins the exchange. But 18.Qc3 wins the game on the spot. :)

    Very neat!  And congrats on winning.

    Your "perfect score" reminds me of the perfect score I achieved in my first tournament -- six unblemished zeroes!  Yours was better...
