Pain for motivation!!!!The Philidor counter gambit crushes a stronger player once a again.
Hello everyone!!I am going to have back surgery on January 28th.Playing through the pain is not easy,However,the philidor counter gambit always seems to do something that lifts my spirit.I won two games for team New Jersey and one of those wins was with the philidor counter gambit.China was the favorite to win the match,however,we kind of shocked everyone.I went 2-0 against a stronger player.Team New Jersey is now in the lead!!!Here is my game I won with the philidor counter gambit.Also known as the Jim West tear jerker!!http://www.chess.com/echess/game?id=60311040
