Here is the game, and I was playing whites pieces.
The first question I always ask in abandoned games is "Did I deserve the win?"
In this one I feel like I did. I feel like I developed much faster, and was dictating the game.
The other question I have of course is all about tatics. I am sure that I missed some that are painfully obvious to higher level players.
I think I won the game, but could have won it faster. I feel like I am too slow out of the gates.
Did you deserve the win? Yes. You played much better imo.
I don't see much, tactically, that you missed.
On move 13, positionally, d5 is probably better than g4. The reasoning is that when your opponent hasn't caslted, the best plan is to bust open the centre as much as you can.
Too slow? A win in 23 moves is too slow? The only thing you need to alter is your perception of slow!!!
I believe you played this game very well. Good job :-)
What amazes me about myself is that I can play this well, then turn around and play some horriblely bad stuff. I just don't understand my own inconsistancy.
That is normal I believe.
The key to getting better isn't necessarily to make all brilliant moves, but to NOT make stupid ones. Maybe focus on that... every move, stop and look to see if it's silly? Sometimes I still make stupid moves too, so I should be listening to my own advice here ^_^
I've been trying to do that, and it has taken me from 1000 to 1100 and climbing.
Good work. Keep it up!
Does anyone know what to do if my opponent has not made his first move after a week or two and he has 60 seconds to go which just stay at that forever?
That is pretty weird. How long have they been like that?
I would put in a support ticket here:
Click on "Claim Win On Time" ??
Hmmmm, thats weird, I have never had to do that.
The games that I win on time are automatic.
There is a setting for your account that allows you to turn off the auto-win thing (only for casual games, not tournaments or team matches). It's called Auto-Win On Time. Go to your Account, Online Chess Settings and it's in the top 5 I think.
Great, thanks. Always good to learn something new.
