An Extremely Fast Upset!!

Hey everyone,

I wanted to share with you this amazing tournament game that I played last Thursday. This was both my highest rated opponent I've beaten and also my fastest tournament win (I've played shorter where I threw a piece away or something and lost, lol) which makes it definitely my fastest upset ever. Smile

The time control was G/90, d5.


My USCF rating is mid-1500s, and his was 1765. The game was 15 moves long (it would have been mate on the 16th.) Laughing This is a good example of what happens when you waste moves with your queen and knight, don't develop and castle precariously. Hope you enjoyed!
