I played two 5/0 games yesterday, the first I lost on time with a totally won game and the second I won by checkmate. I thought both games were decent for 5 minute blitz.
Nice games - thanks for posting them! Your first game is the reason I have to play with a 5 second delay/increment. Autopilot after Nxe1. Tough loss.
Thanks, Dargone. I really don't mind losing on time with a won game. I get the satisfaction of having outplayed my opponent while he gets the satisfaction of winning.
23... Qxf7+ 24. Kh1 Qe2! (targetting Rook and Knight), and some mate threats/fork threats.
Which game are you talking about?
He means ...Qxf2 in the first game
Great mindset. I actually feel the same way when I lose on time with a winning position. Although, to be honest, I usually lose on time with a worse position :D
aah oops! thanks :D
Yeah, I puzzled over Nxf2 or Qxf2 for about 5 sec. and went with the N in case I had to keep the White Queen off e5.
