I just played a weird/terrible/crazy game here (10 min blitz) and won.
I'm not particulary proud of this game(although I played nice in the end), but I do think it's incredible how me and my opponent missed a queen on prise for like 12 moves each !
I mean, I'm not a giant of chess, but I'd call myself an experienced player, my blitz chess rating is generally arround 1600, my opponent was also a 1600 player.
Still, we managed to play like 24 moves, without either of us noticing a queen on prise!
I annotated the game with some (or a lot) of my thoughts.
By the way, I'm playing during nightshifts, that's my excuse ! Don't know about my opponent though.
That was easily the most twisted game i have ever seen..
It can happen.....
This is maybe because both of you are fairly strong players so you don't expect each other to blunder your queen so putting her majesty in take simply escaped your eyes. It happens to everyone. For example, see this GM game, it's even more crazy :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ix69sCFahw&feature=BFa&list=FLzey7hVJUIQV7T4qKZQ4SWw
Now that's what I call hang time!
3...Nc6?? is already a game losing blunder!! Reuben Fine fell into this trap in his younger days. 5.d5! Nxe5 6.c5 Nbc4 7.f4! e6 8.Qd4! (8.fxe5 Qh4+) Qh4+ 9.Qf2 Qh6 10.Nc3! and wins
Hey! That picture in fouadeds column looks like puppethead on a binger
I just hit between those two little white boxes (thinking it was gonna play like a video).
@ JMB, yeah 3 ..Nc6 is indeed also a blunder, d6 needs to be played first. I learned this in the meantime as well.
that was amazing
It is natural in time limit chess.
