Partly to do with opening theory, though, I quickly broke out of my own book knowledge. Kind of nice, you can be judge.
Was 11.Qxg6 premature for some reason? I certainly would have played it in a blitz game, and might have played such a move with time to think.
I had White in the following game this past Saturday against an 1892. Blew him right off the board!
One of my best miniatures! I don't think black made too many mistakes either, just wasted tempos, and I took advantage!
Isn't wasted tempi a series of mistakes?
Well, definitely h6, c6, were wasted, and he shouldve checked me first before recapturing the rook.
Such a delicate miniature I find out using analysis afterwards. My full exchange, during the game, led to an almost equal game according to the computer. It was tricky though, believe it or not, attacking the knight on 22. with g4 wasn't the best move. I was thinking of mate, whereas the computer wouldn't fall for it, my opponent did. The tactic that won it was deflection, but really it was just a blunder.
This is one of my game played OTB in a long time control, my opponent wasn't very strong but... Enjoy
For some reason I found this game refreshing! ;)
Here at move 12, I missed cxd5 Nxd5 and Nxe4:
My oponnent disconnected in a worse position.
Here I am a bit sad that I didn´t see the shortest mate with 13...Qxb3, I have always been lazy for tactics:
Or, to finish one move sooner, 20. ...Bb4
The old Center Counter Queen Trap trick.
Billwal, tricky one! i like
Here is another sharp one which occured during a real blitz tournament
