My first OTB game :)

  • #1
    I am exited to post my first OTB game, played yesterday in a chess club in Amstelveen (NL).
    There are quite a few mistakes and blunders from me and my opponent.
    I just wanted to share with you guys how I started to blunder when I was feeling quite confident that I am winning the game (this is on move 20. c7? - I played almost instantly).
     
     I also recommend to you, play OTB games, it is really exciting and different feeling to playing online.

    @chesssdotcomv3sucks I imported in lichess first and analysed there too.

    If you still need facts (and if this is important for you), please check my scoresheet picture attached here happy.png.null

    Congrats on winning your first OTB game!

    I'm sure next time, you will have this experience of blundering when winning, and now can realise when that might be happening and stop it!

    Which do you find more stressful and nerve-wracking:  OTB chess or Internet Chess?

    Thanks mate!
    I think so, that's why it's good to analyse the games that you won too happy.png

    OTB was much fun for me, playing online feels like playing to my laptop/tablet at different level!

     What a crazy game, it was going back and forth. What is your rating and your opponent rating or is it unrated event.

    Yea, from winning to losing to winning lol, crazy happy.png

    I still don't have a rating, but I might be 1000 - 1100 OTB probably, he also didn't have a rating.

    The worst blunder in the game was Ra6 and the opponent not taking it tongue.png although this Rb4 Nc6+ stuff isn't too pretty either.

     

    Always good to win, but I imagine the centipawn loss is pretty high, without having looked at the lichess analysis. What was the time control?

    On Ra4, both of my rooks were hanging, so he took the one on b2 ( I remember I shook my head on Ra4), but in general, after c7 blunder, I started to feel pretty bad of how I let the winning game slip away. Only after Rxb4, I started to feel a bit better, btw, I intentionally left the b4 pawn hanging happy.png (I like N forks). The time control was 1h:30min.

    The most stressful nerve-wracking thing for me would be writing on that strange unaligned scoresheet. :)

    ok this might sound really stupid but still- what does OTB stand for?

    OTB = Over The Board, when you play on actual board with pieces, not online happy.png

    Well done and welcome to the wonderful world of OTB chess.

    It's the only chess that matters.

    I love to see you higher rated, and study tactics from a book and then internet and Silman's Endgame and Logical Move by Move by Chernev; you will get a solid rating 1600 fide and 1700 fide a year from now. You play pretty solid except for the blunders, I think you have potential; I was very low rated when I first started 1162 uscf and took me three years to get 2019 uscf, if you study the right way you will improve dramatically. Good luck in your next game. happy.png

    Thanks guys!

    @yureesystem thanks, I am trying to study on my free time, however still hate those stupid blunders I make. I definitely first have to work on that direction.
