This is a championship game I just played. I did quite well, except for a couple of moves, one of which I'd call the blunder of blunders. Thowing away a perfectly won game.
Sorta funny, but I am still annoyed at myself for allowing it to happen.
I was so proud of this game, I believed that I played quite well, right up until I screwed it up ^_^
wow, cool game
I did better (or worse) ;)
I thought so too :-)
very interesting game
I must say... I have learned to be extra careful in such situations!
We have all done it!!
No, it was not a time problem. I had plenty of time left on the clock.
I did spend 8 mins on dxc6, but other than that, I didn't play slow. My opponent was the one in time trouble.
Well, you didn't throw it all the way - you didn't lose, just made a draw. I don't know how much time you used for the moves such as 16.dc6, but if you willingly started some time-consuming complications, then an error in zeitnot is logical consequence.
whew. how unfortunate...
Epine, yes, I was actually quite happy with my performance during the game, I thought 15.dxc6 was a gutsy move :-)
CCP, no, I made the move thinking that black couldn't stop 38.g4#
I believe it was a combination of fatigue and heat -- the heaters in the place were so high I was sweating!
Wow! I mostly like the white's moves, especially when sacrificed the queen (I firstly thought that THAT was the great blunder..) and I also appreciate in this game the continiusly threats lead to that, from both sides. White was using better the advantage of having bishops and knights, than black was using his queen. When I read the comment about the next move's blunder, i was trying to found out what may that was, and I bet at Re7. I was so close.. Obviously, you couldn't imagine the possibility of draw, nor I
If I were to guess, I'd say that the white bishop camouflaged as a rook in your mind...
