My first online Game
I finished my very first online game of chess today. Here is the result:
It was touch and go for a while. chess180's style really threw me for a loop. I tried to stick to the basics and it paid off in the end. If it wasn't for the last 3 moves, assuming the white K could get to safety, all that is left is my pawn advantage, but in a tricky position with me at the helm, who knows how that would have turned out ?
Cheers to chess180 for a good game and exposing me to an opening I would never see from playing against software. Thanks.
PS - I don't think I earned a 1442 rating with one win. I had the default 1200 when the game started. How does the rating system work ? Maybe I deserve 1242 tops.
