5 minutes of fun

  • #1

    I hate putting this game in "game showcase" since it's only a 5 min. blitz game and not worth of showcasing.  But I though it was a fun game with a cute ending, even if Black might have played differently had it been a longer game.  I'm sure White would have. My opponent, Mr. Black, was rated slightly lower than me at the place where we played.

    19.Qb6 is even more fun.

    This game shows nicely that bad things will happen if you don't get your horseys out. Well done!

    That looks much more exact!

    Good thing I only play people.

    Two of these moves were already obvious to me.

    How could you miss the free bishop?

    He should have resigned after 16.Nc3.

    Do you play blitz?

    Even in blitz I wouldn't miss something so obvious.

    Plus, when I was checking your game it took me only a second to realize that you had mate in two.

    Everyone will miss some obvious threats. its normal.

    Wow, batgirl. It seems like your games are attracting the analysis of some very strong players.

    Does Yereslov realise his blitz rating is 1256 when he says stuff like black should resign after losing a piece or "Even in blitz I wouldn't miss something so obvious."?

    Yereslov is trolling everywhere, don't mind him.

    Well, I know from about 20,000 games of experience in blitz that what I can see in seconds reviewing a game is a often a lot different that what I can see during a game in the same number of, or less, seconds.  This is probably because in a game, under pressure, there's usually no time for considering lines or candidate moves  other than the ones that further the plan in your head... it's either that or just react which is a not a good way to conduct a game.  So, sometimes you miss even mate-in-one, or similar threats towards yourself because it's outside your focus but with the luxury of post-game review, it's easy to see.  It's particularly easy to see  for anyone with computer assistance who goes to the dubious trouble an analyzing a blitz game.

    Your moves were really accurate until this point. You had a free bishop with 13.Nxg4. This move also attacks the knight.
    You mean the queen.

    I'm not trolling at all. Moves like a free bishop and mate in two are obvious to me.

    These moves could be picked out by a 900+ USCF rated player.

    The fact a 1500+ missed it just proves further my theory.

    Even in a blitz game, I have never missed a free piece.

    I didn't need my computer to figure out the mate in two.

    The minute I saw your game my intuition allowed me to notice the move.

    My rating has been as high as 1600+ in Tactics Trainer, and I typically study puzzles.

    Moves like this are very easy to spot even for a patzer.

    The first blitz game of yours I look at you hang your queen.

    I wasn't even trying in that game.

    I was never good at blitz, but a free bishop is easy to spot.

    You're a terrible troll, and a terrible player. Just stop commenting.

     

    A free bishop is easy to spot but not a hanging queen? Oh dear.
