    @BronsteinPawn: WTF? I can't see anyone above 900 playing the black side.

    He was a master and I was 800 at that time.

    A nice game.

    Incidentally I would be very happy to post one of my losses on here. I always admired Fischer for including some lost games in his 60 Memorable Games book.

    Obviously in any of my losses I will have made some mistakes, but I will find one where my opponent punished it neatly.

    Ok, a miniature that I lost.

    My opponent played very well this game. However I do not believe there was anything unfair about the way he beat me. I watched him in other games and he was playing very fairly. I also got a draw against him on one of our 3 games.

    I also looked up his name and he plays county-level OTB which explains why he is such a good player and I did well to even manage one draw off him.

    Well, there still is some statistical truth in his statement, but it's not a "WTF" at all. First thing first, nearly everyone people post game they won here, so a more indicative statement would be "I can't see any black win above 900". White starting with the initiative, it's really hard for black to pull up a win under 25 or so moves, unless white randomly gives the initiative away or falls for tricks, which happens more often at low level (but even below 900, white wins are vastly over-represented, partly thanks scholar mate and alike).

    I've been trying the London System. I don't usually expect to win quickly with it, but sometimes opponents self-destruct.

    Ok I get that piont. But then it was formulated a bit inaccurate. Because now it stated that there was no black player that had an elo rating above 900 wich was not true because there was one with a rating of above 1900 and he could find it if he looked better. Although it must be now a lot of games in the meanwhile.  

    But in that case I would like to place a miniature in wich I won with the black pieces. Of course blunders are made in miniatures. Otherwise you can t lose that quick.
