It seems I'm getting high enough rated in bullet to start meeting titled players on the autopairing now! Here's one of my first meetings, and my first "victory"! Featuring an improbable queen trap after I dozed off a bit in the middlegame.
When I actually beat (face?) a titled player over the board/in correspondence I shall be more proud, but ... I still felt I had to mark my first effort, even if it was 1|0.
Nice queen trap... the queen has so many squares, but none of them work. You will be beating titled players OTB in no time!
Very nice game and win!
I beat IM attila turzo in CC... But it was a simul with 1000 other players :D
I got a draw against Atilla. I was happy that I didn't lose though.
Cheers! I drew Attila as well, not my best game - slightly worse out of the opening, then I was pressing for the win but couldn't find it. I've also lost to a couple NMs in CC - just finishing up two decent games against an NM now but the best I can reasonably do in those are two draws, and there's a fair chance of losing one of those too!
I played 3 games with titled players so far: +2 -0 =1
Seems like they don't put so much afford as in live chess...IMO
black dozed off too!
25...Rxc2+ planning Qd4+ looks interesting.
It is quite satisfying when you beat a titled player. :)
I beat a gm at the local club a few times. :)
Nice games MSC! You slaughtered Defibaugh in that middle game - I guess he needs to learn he can't play the 5...d5 Schliemann in correspondence, I think it's supposed to be unsound.
Calamity Christie - You're right, 25...Rxc2 is definitely a more interesting try which keeps Black an advantage. My opponent moved 25...Qf6 pretty quickly though, I guess because it was bullet, and then spent a little time on the 26th move looking - of course, by then it is too late!
Anyway, closest I've come to beating a titled player in CC was probably this game I finished up recently:
Not a bad game by me but I feel there were some errors. Anyone see any obvious ways to improve that I didn't mention?
