Beating an IM on ICC

Mar 14, 2015, 7:17 PM |

Well, its finally happened, I've finally beaten an IM in a one on one game.  This was played on ICC yesterday and by no means is it a very good game.  At least if an IM has bad game I have chances to win!

I've managed to win quite  a few games against IMs in simuls but it has ben a long time coming to win in a fair game.

The fact that my online ratings have plummetted over the last two and a bit years may have played to my favour here.  White may have underestimated me somewhat.  At my best I was rated around 1900 in the 15-minute pool myself.
