That's nothing personal really, I just want to see what you can find that doesn't get your post deleted by the mods.
Well, at least 20. ...Re1+ is a good move.
By nature I'm optimistic and trusting, but I haven't yet decided if the OP is just trolling or not. Assuming the OP is serious, I've posted many games full of blunders (mine and the opponents) and have gotten helpful, useful, polite, and sometimes just encouraging responses to those posts. Never a horse-pile of flak like we have seen in this and previous threads. Things I consider:
1. Don't post pretending you are any better than you are - your game will show otherwise.
2. Why would anyone want to see the game I am posting? Is it either fun, amusing, instructive or you need help? (if none of the above, no point in posting it)
3. If any of the above, point it out in the post or the annotation.
4. If asking for help, do all you can on your own, post your conclusions or where you got stuck and then ask for help.
5. Post in an appropriate forum. "Game Showcase" is best, I think, where you haven't done much analysis and just want to post a game you felt happy to win.
What we are seeing from this OP is games posted in "Game Analysis" where, by his own posts, he says he has not done any analysis, and asking for what? Why are we seeing these games?
I always wonder how it comes that some instinctively understand the rules to follow to get some advice in the analysis forum, why some others do not understand them at first and then expect them to change.
Thank you for your existence, LongIslandMark (and all the others).
I think this game came close of being the best chess game in the history! Especially if you consider that this game is a bullet game, with enormously time pressure.
Mister Idiot, please keep uploading these brilliant masterpieces and seriously consider coaching. Your instinctial playing style should be the standard for every chess player.
But sometimes people are rough around the edges. So perhaps on our part then this: patience, kindness, and firmness.
We can politely tell what is wrong; that it is like so, and not like such.
For if we disregard, and expel anyone who is unable to cater to how we want to be met, perhaps we both lose. They never learn and understand what they are doing wrong, and we become less human.
Thanks Irontiger - it seems instinctive to me - and I think you have summarized and listed in the order of importance.
Thanks for the compliments and suggestions. The feedback I'm getting is that maybe Showcase forum is more appropriate for these games.
The justification I have for posting in the Analysis forum was because I felt that I took the time to record my reasonings in step with the game and that this was a form of analysis. I guess we all have different perspectives and definitions of the way things ought to play out.
Nevertheless I felt this was valid feedback, so next time unless I do a computational analysis with the game, I shall move my games to the Showcase forum. This is probably the most appropriate arena for my 'edutainment' style.
I possibly wouldn't consider this game amongst my best due to some clumsy defending by my opponent and a hanging queen for one move.
Making this wise comment a bit bigger cannot harm.
This made me laugh so hard!!!
Loved the commentary!!
