Good Game

Jan 24, 2012, 7:13 PM |

I enjoyed playing this game. And I'm sure my opponent enjoyed it too.

I was very nervous when matched me against a much higher rated opponent for a 30/5 game. I was 1203 and my opponent was about 1543. My nervousness continued until the sixth move.

After my opponent played his sixth move, I was comfortable. On the thirteenth move, my opponent gave me just what I wanted. On the fifteenth move, I gave my Knight for my opponent's pawn. On the seventeenth move, my opponent resigned, and my rating jumped up by 39 points. By the way, my Knight and my opponent's pawn were the only casualties in this war. 


Morning well-begun! Looking forward to a good day. :-)
