Friday night lost in a terrible game against TheChessorcist. It was part of the Dan Heisman 45/45 slow chess quad thing. It's like I wasn't down materially but TheChessocist sucked the life out of my pieces and I could barely move. I really couldn't execute any type of attack or even put together a defense. He rendered my pieces impotent. Then slowly crushed me like a boa constrictor.
Yesterday, I spent time reinstalling a Windows XP/Parallels setup on my iMac so that I can install my old copy of Fritz just to help analyze this game and see where I botched it up. Today I will go through the game and annotate it along with my thoughts and maybe some additional insight from Fritz.
I have to email this to Attila so that we can go over it in my next lesson. I don't want to get in this situation again. It's one thing go out fighting but to get beat down with an aluminum baseball bat in a cornfield by Frank Vincent while being while being held down by his goons is not a fun way to go out. See me and my brother Dominic get bloodied by Frank Vincent (aka The Chessocist) below. He buried us while we were still breathing just to make an example to the rest of the Quad.
