My interesting chess games
Just a place for games i deem interesting, memorable, or just plain fun to play thru over again.
I blundered quite a number of times in this game, wasn't very happy with the result.
In the next game, my opponent pretty much gave me the game, all i had to do was to make sure not to give the advantage back
next set of games were in a tourney(in fact most of my games are).
the second round in the 5 round tourney(i won the first). opponent was rated a bit below me so i expected a win. though i was surprised with a game i almost lost, he blundered and gave it to me.
game 3 of tourney
with my dreams of gold shattered in a match i shd have won, i took the 4th game hoping for a silver at least
here, i quit the tourney. these last two games show my greatest flaw, which is i blunder away winning positions. any help would be appreciated.
the next set of games is from another <1500 tourney, which i won
game 1, against the top seed. i spotted a mistake and punished the guy
i was pretty psyched about beating the top seed and enthusiastic about the rest of the tourney.
in game 2, i experimented with an opening i was developing at the time. it failed, was broken into pieces, but my opponent blundered his queen and resigned
in game 3, i got a pawn ahead early on in the game, held on the the lead until the endgame, where that pawn queened and won me the game
game 4 was another blunder by opponent, and i was as always on hand to punish
my opponents opening was not so strong in game 5, it gave me a very strong position and i butchered his uncastled king
one of many tourneys i've won so far.XD
i think my major problems now are that:
1. I still blunder too much, but i sort of expect this to fade as i progress
2. I never really make any brilliant combinations. i always just wait for opponent to blunder, then strike. this makes my play against higher rated guys who don't make many mistakes difficult.
Any help would be appreciated. I really wanna improve my game
