    This is not really a game to brag.

    Move 8 blunders a piece , move 9 blunders the queen ,move 15 blunders the queen again and move 17 simply gives the queen for a knight!Plus for the first 16 moves you developed only one knight and nothing else(the bishop was never developed , it was blundered).You were not only worst but also dead lost during most of the game but he missed a checkmate in one! If that is your best game I don't dare to see your worst.

    I was intentionally aggressive.

    I was intentionally reckless.

    I intentionally was in IDGAF mode.

     

    I didn't want to play all your little, traditional, orthodox classical BORING incremental advance of play by play moves, rather full on full blown assault. (Of course this won't pull off 100% of the time, but that's the point and beauty in a timed game.)

    The whole point of playing chess is to... PLAY. Not to appease your coach or other peers and sell your soul to devil.

     

    So there.

     

    You are entitled to your opinion, as am I. And this was absolutely gem of a game to show that even if you play absolutely madness like Sparta but don't kowtow to pressure, you can still pull off James Bond like suave.


    Your mileage "of boring style" may vary.

    You do realize that it was intentional and I didn't really care about my queen. Or you don't get that either?

    For once, I agree with IAMBBW.

    So you're saying you blundered your queen once accidentally then again on purpose, and this is your best game...

    I think you only like this game because you didn't realize Nf2 was checkmate until after you'd played it, and shock combined with the thrill of winning from a lost position made you want to post the game.

    Ok ok, we get it, but it was better to just post the end position. Or make it one of those recurring "this is why you should never resign" topics... but saying

    You'd better expect people to point out how ridiculously bad it is.

    I am not particularly good at chess. In fact I'm very much a beginner. I like that you posted your game and are proud of the win, but you must realize higher rated players will always criticize a move we think is amazing as a blunder (its probably considered a blunder for a reason. Meaning you will end up in a losing position or lost a piece without any compensation). This forum is a great way to express yourself and I'm glad you did. I liked the game. Just remember when you post you open the door for criticism and will probably get tons of it. Good luck, keep learning.

    The game is great fun. I was impressed with the ... Nf2# hence this play line:
    30. Bxa7 b6 31. Qa6 Ng4 32. Qxb6+ Kd5 33. c4+ Ke5 34. Rf1 Nf2+ 35. Qxf2 Rg4 36. Qe3+ Re4 37. Bd4#
