Here's an annoted game of mine. It was played on 15|10 and is nothing for weak nerves as it contains massive blunders. Actually it's so blunderful that I think that's exactly what makes it fun to watch.
Hey Ximi. Pretty funny story. A brief comment; move 21...Rxd1+is a Zwisschenzug which is typically hard to spot at the 1000 level, the normal move would have been 21...Rxc8. Mistakes aside, cool read. Cheers.

Had he not done this, I would not have left h2 undefended and the Double-Queen-hang most likely would never have happend!
Oh, and we 1100s are much better than the 1000 level! :D
This double-queen hang is chesslarious!
Hanging Queen takes Hanging Queen... you don't see THAT every day.
I would have said: "It's no sight for a sober man".
Is there a word more overused by chessplayers than the word "annotated"?
"... and wins."
I guess that's TWO words.
Now the opponent seemed to have fallen over laughing or something. I was expecting him to 0-0-0, which would totally have thwarthed any threat I had but he timed out.
So the Sicilian, despite being played with a few inaccuracies, gave me a triumphant victory!
"Then takes, takes and takes". Then it spins for me, and I almost lose the grip
"Patzer" is used quite often as well.
Lol! Another comment you should have added to the Sicilian game on move 12: developing the bishop with tempo! Stronger than Qa8#, which would be a second queen move in the opening.
This wasn't my shortest game in terms of moves but it was the shortest where the opponent actually resigned by clicking the resign-button instead of letting the clock run out. So this showed a great sign of sportsmanship!
I dunno, yelling out "CHECKMATE!" in a crowded coffee house or internet cafe might be up there.
White Queen is sandwiched between white and black King. Other black guys just watching.
Game contained also a royal fork and me sacrificing 2 rooks in order to prevent checkmate, when there had been much better options had I considered them a move sooner.
