We still have hope! Anyone can beat anyone and this is the proof!
Yes, well being a 1900 USCF player may have factor into to the result a LITTLE BIT.
Also, 12...Bxf2 13.Nd1 Be1!! wins a pawn.
And wow...that was just a sad blunder Black played at the end (though I have done much worse)
Here is game where one of them 1300 types had me cold flat busted: He had a nasty little surprise for me in the opening, i won but the guy came to play !!
Correction: on 8.e5 black replies with Ne4 not Nd5
I would have played 19.Qxb6 in the first game...is that a mistake? It seems to even up the material.
another example is my recent fourm showing a 700player beating a 1407 OTB !!
It's not a mistake CookieRaider...I just wanted the checkmate opportunity. He hung his bishop later so I got lucky.
Pity you don't give the full sequence to mate here mateologist because it's a good one but here it is (I hope it's right):-
With the blocking move of the bishop, it becomes 6 moves to mate.
world series of chess sounds like awesome name for a tournament
It was a tournament that was dedicated to baseball lovers. We all picked a team from the majors. The first round is the regular season and the second round and any after that are the playoffs.
