OK only one small thing I can see you need to improve:
DON'T CUT AND PASTE FRITZ' STATEMENTS IN THE COMMENTARY!!!
We want to know your analysis, not the full or blunder check engine.
Great Simul win though.
Thanks for the advice. :) Ron
It's funny when players claim to have analyzed their game, when it is in fact the analysis of a machine. They never did anything.
This was a two minute game and I'm very proud that I played very accurately for most of the game.
Looks like White just learned to play.
His only major blunder was 17.c4, which would look like natural move to any player without major analysis.
Move 2 looked like a weakie IMO.
Here is a game that shows chess blindness at work, and why it's sometimes best to just play on impulse, rather than theory.
I think it's fair to show both your good and bad games.
You mean the Phillidor Defense? Yes, it's well regarded as a weak defense, but, when you're playing against players who depend on opening theory for a good game, it's very effective.
I would rather show my tournment games, but I rarely play OTB and I always get nervous and hesitant whenever I participate in large events.
Philidor's reversed? 1. e4 e5 2. d3? is a great way to throw away the initiative and twiddle pieces around pointlessly. sad.
Black is already losing the initiative by replying to white's choices.
I didn't play it because I considered it a good move, I played it because no one studies it, and because the typical Two Knights Defense was starting to get too boring.
my first tournament. posted this in the forum but didnt get any response. let me know if you have any advice. thanks!
Not much to say on the games but I completely forgot about our chess club here. Ususally I play at Coffee Time and PCH.
If you want to play some games against other players in and from Portland here, search for the group: Portland, Oregon. We would love to have you there.
Nice playing though in the rounds. You seem to have a good understnding of tactics and positional play. I might suggest focusing on those two areas as I did not get to see any endgame play in your games (though it never hurts to continue to practice in those areas).
Best of luck in further games.
You shouldn't post four games all in one post. It's too confusing and too hard to organize.
I played white, 10|5, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgOijcEDPbI
Why is your rating 2180 here and 1500 in real life?
Real life ain't all it's cracked up to be.
No, I have no rating yet. And the game is result of 3-4 hours of sleeping. Total crap! :D
Yereslov's analysis is really good, but I would like to suggest alternatives to the mistakes made.
18 Bb5? is a mistake. Looking at the position, it is clear that the Black bishop on g7 holds the kingside together and that the knight on d4 is far more effective than the knight on e2, so why not trade?
Also, in the endgame, Rg5? is a mistake by black, Rf3! wins
