Game 1:

*The below text happen during the game after move 6.e4. We played and talked some during this game.*

HowDoIChangeMyName: I just played into this variation on my last game. Im starting to think Nb6 is not a good variation

X_PLAYER_J_X: i think it is

HowDoIChangeMyName: ok, thanks. Just asking to double check

X_PLAYER_J_X: lol well i can't remember

X_PLAYER_J_X: lol actually i do play gruenfeld

X_PLAYER_J_X: but haven't faced a fianchetto in a long while

HowDoIChangeMyName: I just changed all my openings. Im trying to play the catalan and the grunfeld.

X_PLAYER_J_X: i was hoping you was going to play the KID

X_PLAYER_J_X: lol so i could crush you slowly lol

X_PLAYER_J_X: but you went with gruenfeld

X_PLAYER_J_X: lil harder lol

HowDoIChangeMyName: I can play the KID next time if you want.

X_PLAYER_J_X: i use to play the KID until i started facing catalans

X_PLAYER_J_X: after that started to switch to something esle

X_PLAYER_J_X: well its not a true catalan but kings fianchetto lines are annoying to play against vs KID

HowDoIChangeMyName: How do you like the Benoni?

X_PLAYER_J_X: Well i have played variations of Benoni's

X_PLAYER_J_X: but I don't play like the Modern Benoni or Benko any of that stuff

X_PLAYER_J_X: I play the Clarendon court from time to time

X_PLAYER_J_X: which some people call it the Old Benoni

HowDoIChangeMyName: I mean as white. Cant black get into a Benoni/Benko

X_PLAYER_J_X: its not that sound but its interesting

X_PLAYER_J_X: Oh I never seem to have problem against those lines alot

X_PLAYER_J_X: however, I don't play 1.d4 a whole lot maybe 300 games out of 2000

X_PLAYER_J_X: I have had some nice wins against Benoni's

X_PLAYER_J_X: pure space advantage nice pawns

X_PLAYER_J_X: I have lost to some high high level players but i don't think i was doing to bad in those games

HowDoIChangeMyName: What do you play as black against e4?

X_PLAYER_J_X: oh I have played several lines

HowDoIChangeMyName: I've been trying out the caro, but just to play the pirc

X_PLAYER_J_X: I have played Sicilian Najdorf and Caro Kann i guess the most

X_PLAYER_J_X: but I am not afraid of playing lines like Pirc, Modern, French

X_PLAYER_J_X: i like fianchetto lines so most lines with one are fine for me

X_PLAYER_J_X: only lines which don't have are like Caro-kann some variations and French

X_PLAYER_J_X: i suppose you could say i had a draw back

*The below text happen after the game.*

HowDoIChangeMyName: oh no, i messed that up

X_PLAYER_J_X: yeah

HowDoIChangeMyName: after Rxf7 i should have taken Rxg2


HowDoIChangeMyName: yeah gg

Game 2:

*The below text happen during the game after move 6...dxc4. We played and talked some during this game.*

X_PLAYER_J_X: yeah this will be interesting

X_PLAYER_J_X: haven't played this in a while

HowDoIChangeMyName: there is a wierd line where black can playe e6 b6 and Ba6.

X_PLAYER_J_X: well i don't remember know

X_PLAYER_J_X: i think white not suppose to let black capture on c4

HowDoIChangeMyName: Im pretty sure white can gambit that pawn and get an e4 push in for compensation

X_PLAYER_J_X: for some reason i just don't believe lol what your doing ha ha

X_PLAYER_J_X: not sure why but it just seems that way to me

HowDoIChangeMyName: its theory to let black capture on c4, i may not be playing it right but i do know that it is playable

HowDoIChangeMyName: i'll look it up later and send you a message if im right or wrong about letting black take on c4

X_PLAYER_J_X: well it does seem like your doing ok so far

HowDoIChangeMyName: I didnt play it right. My chess coach told me it was playable though, that white has to play correctly or he is down a pawn

*The below text happen during the game after move 34...Qe4+.*

X_PLAYER_J_X: lol going for the win or going for the draw

X_PLAYER_J_X: lol scary decision of them all


HowDoIChangeMyName: well you have the draw

HowDoIChangeMyName: go for the win though

*The below text happen after the game.*


X_PLAYER_J_X: intense game

HowDoIChangeMyName: I couldnt find the right defense in time

X_PLAYER_J_X: I should of went for the draw

X_PLAYER_J_X: lol put so much extra pressure on myself no reason lol

HowDoIChangeMyName: its not an OTB tournament, why not atleast try

X_PLAYER_J_X: I couldn't find any mate

X_PLAYER_J_X: I think you might of been able to draw

X_PLAYER_J_X: this ending maybe

HowDoIChangeMyName: I bet the computer can find a win

X_PLAYER_J_X: maybe

HowDoIChangeMyName: i was 2 pawns up at the end

X_PLAYER_J_X: well 4 pawns vs 2 pawn + 1 bishop

X_PLAYER_J_X: it will be tricky

X_PLAYER_J_X: for some reason i thought taking on c4 seems good

HowDoIChangeMyName: once the queens were trade i think that is losing

X_PLAYER_J_X: its like you have no defence on it

X_PLAYER_J_X: for me or for you ?

HowDoIChangeMyName: for white

HowDoIChangeMyName: wait wait hold on

X_PLAYER_J_X: well I was wondering about the move 53.Ke3

X_PLAYER_J_X: instead of 53.fxg5

HowDoIChangeMyName: yeah thats losing for white at the end

HowDoIChangeMyName: what about 46. Qf7 for white

X_PLAYER_J_X: well I didn't check with engine but it does seem very scary for black consider how timer was

X_PLAYER_J_X: if 46.Qf7

X_PLAYER_J_X: i was thinking about

X_PLAYER_J_X: i think the move I was thinking about at time was Qe3+


X_PLAYER_J_X: i did over look the f4 move by you

X_PLAYER_J_X: so i wonder

X_PLAYER_J_X: Qf7 Qe3+ Kh4 Qh6 is mating

X_PLAYER_J_X: but maybe Qf7 Qe3+ f4

X_PLAYER_J_X: than Qf3 maybe

X_PLAYER_J_X: trying to threaten mate on g4

HowDoIChangeMyName: white takes on g5

HowDoIChangeMyName: with the queen

X_PLAYER_J_X: ooooo g6

X_PLAYER_J_X: is hangin hmmmm

X_PLAYER_J_X: yeah at move 36 I took long time to think

X_PLAYER_J_X: I should of went for draw i think

HowDoIChangeMyName: im glad you went for it

HowDoIChangeMyName: even though i lost

X_PLAYER_J_X: I really dont think my h5 move

X_PLAYER_J_X: was very dangerious

X_PLAYER_J_X: I thought you was going to punish me I don't know what engine thinks

X_PLAYER_J_X: but surely it was a scary try maybe not working in long time control but we was in like a blitz mode for sure

X_PLAYER_J_X: at move 38 I was looking at Qe3

HowDoIChangeMyName: right. I've been losing alot to time trouble lately

X_PLAYER_J_X: I just didn't see how to continue

X_PLAYER_J_X: well don't feel bad I am same way

X_PLAYER_J_X: my bullet ranking is horrible

X_PLAYER_J_X: I end up in winning positions with no time left

X_PLAYER_J_X: yeah I do need to work on my time management

X_PLAYER_J_X: but I also think bullet and those time controls are more with interenet speed and premove nonsense

HowDoIChangeMyName: me too, but my blitz rating is terrible. I think too long

X_PLAYER_J_X: I use to get upset about that

HowDoIChangeMyName: Even when im playing OTB game 90 with SD 30 im still getting myself into time trouble

X_PLAYER_J_X: but than I realized its not my fault its not even your fault if your playing short time controls

X_PLAYER_J_X: its obvious your mind wants to process full position

X_PLAYER_J_X: i think other people just don't care and play random stuff

HowDoIChangeMyName: right, it doesnt help that i keep changing to new openings. So im trying to remember, think about what lines i know or like
