The road to ELO2000: back to 1.e4! Plus a really nice finish from a smith morra game

Hi Everyone!


So guess what... after 3 months of flirting with 1.d4 and the london system, I decided I just can't play chess in that boring positional style. I mean, come on! Chess is supposed to be my hobby! And if I can't have fun playing chess... well then that defeats the purpose of a hobby wouldn't it?

Anyway, here's a game I recently played over the internet. I really like it because of the finish. My opponent definitely did not play the best moves in this opening, but nevertheless, I hope you will enjoy it.
