@Ryanurocks - Now the great reveal? Who was your chess teacher :D
Here I played against a 2100 who defeated and drew the runner up of my state's amateur championship (not during it but at the club) with 60 minutes per side so I guess there's no shame in losing this one. Be warned, I included a stem game just because I feel proud of playing the same moves as a 2750+ without even being aware that the game or even player existed:
my 12 Bd6 was useless pls analyse Bxh7.
Sorry, I didn't notice that my game had been analyzed for a while. I was considering 55. Qxd3, but after a few minutes analysis, I realized it falls to 55... Qb3, which wins the bishop. Did I actually play at that rating for that game? I know I played well, but I definitely did not think That would be the rating at which I played. As for my chess teacher, he's not really well known or anything, he's just a chess teacher that lives close to where I live.
@Ryanurocks - I don't know the algorithm that chesszen.com uses to calculate your play rating for a specific game. It probably has something to do with how closely your moves match the various computer engine moves. According to them, you certainly played that well. Congrats.
p.s. I offered you a chance to give some good PR to a good chess teacher, please take it!
But that's the thing. He finished his class, and all I can ever remember refering to him as was Mr. Jones.
Thank you Mr. Jones :D
Hello guys this game being posted was extremely tactical pls point out if I missed a tactic from my opponents side.
THANKS A LOT!!
Pretty entertaining game. Thx!
I'm working pretty heavily in other areas right now. I'll have to swing back for the games I have skipped. Thx for being patient with me!
Can you give some pointers/analysis on berlin wall?
Thanks a lot .
