crush the semi-slav as black

It is Black who plays the semi-Slav.

Optimissed

This is probably just a bullet game and white played very badly.

ChessLebaneseSalah

ok mr.1700, first of all the semi-slav is indeed played by black, but here I mean by crush that I crushed the position arisen from it, obviously you are just looking to troll. Even if it was a mistake it would be easy to understand what I meant. Secondly It was blitz (not that it matters) and white is still about 500 points higher rated than you, so I would advise you refrain from such uncessary comments. You dont like, scroll

Optimissed

You're just an idiot, calling me that. End of conversation.

Blocked.

ChessLebaneseSalah

im not sure what I called you tbh, 1700? well thats the rating of the time control you play the most? so there no insult here, I respect players higher rated than me and I think you should do the same instead of saying my opponent played badly. happy.png xox

Chessisfunforme

he did play badly though u dont play f4 blindly like your opponent did

ChessLebaneseSalah

f4 is actually one of the top 3 engine recommandations, not sure what youre talking about

ChessLebaneseSalah

that being said, I agree with you that he didnt play good, but f4 is a good move. Also he was in time pressure when he started blundering, a bit after f4

Optimissed

You should respect everybody.

I don't think that a high blitz rating means anything. Same as bullet.

ChessLebaneseSalah

I respect you, trust me. I just dont like when you say someone played bad and you are lower rated, I find it ironic. 

Optimissed

I find it ironic if someone plays badly and the only one allowed to point it out is someone you approve of. I also found it ironic that you boasted about crushing the Slav when your opponent played so badly. Furthermore, it's ironic that you consider a blitz rating is an indication of strength. Finally, what you say doesn't add up and that's probably ironic too.

It's funny how you decided to pick on his blitz rating and ignore every other time control just because that's your highest rating.

ChessLebaneseSalah

@marco I chose his blitz rating because its the time control he plays the most you can go check for yourself. It is my highest rating rn, but that does not have anything to do with it because when I typed the message my bullet was higher, lol

Hi, ok, I'll talk to you. I know there may be a cultural difference in how we approach disagreements but anyone who starts off as you did by doing what we call "talking down" to a person has passive-aggressively insulted them. They have thrown the first rock. I'm willing to start over, anew.

15 minutes for all moves was always my strongest speed, apart from two and a half hours each for all moves, as in county matches and some tournaments. Most league chess in the UK is based around 90 minutes each for all moves, no increment. It's a bit fast for me. The highest rating I actually achieved on otb play was only the ECF equivalent of 2040 FIDE but I was a lot stronger than that at my best, averaging over periods of three to four months, but then something would get in the way. 15 to 20 years ago I regularly played 5 mins blitz with people around 2250 and won my share. I have played over 7000 ten minute games here and reached about 1900 but that isn't my strongest speed. Since they changed 10-minute to rapid here, I changed to 5 mins and I'm struggling because it's so long since I played it and all the lag becomes a big factor and people just play to win on time, so it's far less enjoyable. The standard of people who play 5 min games online is very low. So all in all, that's why I felt qualified to comment the way I did. happy.png

The semi-slav is a solid opening. White didn't play so well in your game.

SNUDOO

Does the OP mean "crush WITH the semi slav" or "crush THE semi slav?" Because if it's the second the game makes no sense. I'm assuming it's the first, and no, f4 isn't that bad of a move. e4 was the losing move, Kh1 would have been a better prophylactic move.

Optimissed

I did point that out. But white didn't seem to know how to play against it. Too passive.
