Hollow Intimidation vs. Real Threats

It's especially satisfying to beat a higher-rated opponent who seems to expect you to be frightened by a fearsome-looking attack (his queen and rook on the kingside) while at the same time he ignores your own real threats (rolling, connected passed pawns in the center).

This was a five minute game.

    Beating someone higher rated is satifying. Your blitz is about the same as mine. And my best win is 1570
