Okay, so I'm what they call a slow thinker - I'm no good at blitz. In fact, my CC rating on this site is about 1000 points higher (!) than my blitz rating. The following 5 0 game is a good example of why that is. It's a rather one-sided pounding, until the very end, where the winner is finally decided.
To tell you how close it was, I had already made the move 51... Rh1 before the white sign popped up to say somebody had won. I thought it was me, but upon further inspection, it turned out that I had missed my chance by a few tenths of a second.
I'm only going to play games with second increments from now on.
By move 20 I thought "How are you going to throw this away?".
Then the rook combo came in and I was thinking "ah".
Then you won it back and I was thinking "????"
I only read the text under once I'd finished the game!
Still, 50 moves in a 5 0 game isnt too bad. You must be a bit put out though!
on move 8 you had Bxh3 winning a night and if it takes then it is mate.
Um... the d-pawn was in the way, and when I moved it, the white queen took care of the threat by moving to e2.
