How about a quickie?

    5/0 game.  My opponent, who was slightly higher rated, played a questionable opening and then wasted time making a weakening pawn move.

    It is surprising white doesn't have a rating at least 300-400 points lower.

    Although your play was good, his was nonsensical and he seemed to be on a quest to score the highest number of question marks in a single game.

    Qf3? h3? Qc3? Bb5+? f3? etc. Lame

    good job punishing  your opponent for that opening! Love the windmill tactic at the end

    I agree his play was awful (lucky for me). . . and apologize for the disappointment, but what do you expect from a quickie?

    I thought the windmill was funny. I was thinking at the time I should have a quick and elegant way to win, but it was a fast game and  I didn't have time to try and figure it all out... the windmill was the obvious ploy and I used it really to give me time to think.

    12...Qf2 looks forcing to me, but milking it with the extra windmill is fun Laughing

    I played this game in the same sitting - different opponent, same time control but not so quick (and my luck was holding out but my nerves were getting frazzled).

    Yeah. It was hard to see quickly that even c2xN doesn't give an escape.

    Because that's where I play.

    trysts

    Here's a game I played on Chesscube. I've never posted one of my games, but I found this one interesting enough to post, just because I too, play a lot at Chesscube and kind of wanted to repay batgirl for her entertaining games. It's not a speed game, simply because I can't think that fast. It's 15 0, and the defeated one was sadly "not me", who has suffered some painful lossesLaughing

    No quickies for trysts.  That was a long game with some nice tactical shots.... in fact I was surprised you didn't go into the endgame with more advantage than you already had since your middlegame seemed superior. Thanks for posting it.

    Because I didn't see it.

    Batgirl, in your second game why didn't you move 32.Rf1 ? It's not that I think what you did was wrong at all (your were about to mate either way), but this way you bring the rook into play earlier.

    These were both 5 min games.  In the second game, I was very low on time by move 32 and, with a won game in my pocket, my main concern was to move quickly but not blunder.  In such a position, I try to make the most immediate safe move. So I was probably thinking first of getting my Queen out of take, then lok for a mating net.
