Your Moment of Glory
But we need a kick in the teeth once in awhile. I'm not the first person to get shellaced by a weaker opponent (Dog was 1490's and I was 1830's before I resigned. From what I've seen so far at Chess.com, I put myself between 1900 and 2200. Time and effort will tell.), and I won't be the last! In fact, I've taken a few scalps myself over the years.
Here's a game that's special for me. I just finished my second year of playing and I was paired against Canadian NM Robert Hamilton. Rob was on a 96 game winning streak in the province of New Brunswick and was shooting for 100 in a bad way, I was to be #97! The day before he played Richard Papenhausen (RIP dude!) and toasted him with a Wing Gambit. I looked it up that night in my BCO and came up with a plan. Ha! So much for plans when you are facing Goliath.But yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
ENJOY YOUR MOMENTS OF GLORY!
