Here is a game I played recently on freechess.org (unrated,15 5). White (that's me) launched a tactical onslaught that unnerved Black to the point of distraction, allowing a bold White pawn to back the Black Queen into a cul-de-sac. Black's errors in this game were many and various. She failed to develop minor pieces, moved the same pieces twice in the opening, did not castle, exerted no control over the center, and subjected her Queen to a relentless hunt along her own frontline. Oh yes; the thrill of a chase that ends on the second rank and the earth moves.
