At first thought the attack was unsound after rxd4!? (initially after the game analysis) But, apparently I am still ahead after further analysis.
wow nice man analyzing others games really is helpful =)
glad I gave someone else the bug..I think one of the greatest thing about it is you get to see positions which you wouldn't normally put/get yourself in. So forces you to think more concretely.
Wow, strange...14...d5 seems to be better for black. Strange that I didn't even see that move
In your alternate line (14. ... Rxd4), after 20. Rb8 Qxg5 isn't Black winning?
oh, i saw chesscube, and i left
apparently u didn't
22. Qf2 looks a bad choice in your for instance. Why not Nxe6+?
Yes, yes it is.
I did find a win for black much earlier in that line though lol
I wonder if chesscube ratings are still inflated. When I used to play there, the 2200s were about the same as 1900s here.
I am guessing you never played in the warzone final. A lot of 1700's will play like masters...Wonder why that could be?
It was a good year ago when I played there. I won quite a few blitz tournaments, but I hated the bullet ones because I'd never win fast enough to score the most points by the deadline.
But anyway, the ratings were terribly inflated. I found I could beat players rated as high as 2400 in blitz there, which is something I can't do here.
Well people start at 1500 there and 1200 here so it makes sense for the ratings to be 300 points higher.
Not true scott...it is 1200 (at least when I started there). Unfortunately I can't get to chesscube atm, for some reason, to confirm.
Anyone else having that problem now?
Don't argue if you don't know. I started at 1500 like 2 weeks ago.
I know I started at 1200...So don't argue if you don' t pay attention
You said not true, and it is true. People do start at 1500 there. So I'm free to argue. What you (think you) started at is irrelevant to say 'it is', maybe 'it was' would be relevant. I'm paying perfect attention thanks, don't try to be clever when you incorrectly argued against my fact.
Yeah I think it's about 300 points, I'm 1800 here 2100 there in blitz.
NOt true again..So quit trying to be patronizing]
Indeed, Chesscube ratings are inflated as they all start at 1500 not like here at 1200.
there needs to be a rule change for pawn promotion
