I won a hard fought team game today. Rating means nothing as my 1200 opponent could have won just as easily (meaning we both had mistakes). Definitely a challenging for me, though one with moments of good defense and tactics on my part.


Here are some other highlights from the current 45/45 tournament (ICC teams) voted by participants:

If you have done the circles you probably will find a faster mate just screaming out to be played on this next one:


Once again things have gotten busy for me, and I am making adjustments. Blog reading is a luxury that I can't much afford, but I hope to still post regularly.

I plan on reading a few pages a week in the McDonald annotated game book. It is clear just how much more GMs have going on in their games than us amateurs. And sometimes GMs don't have to do very much wrong to earn a '?' from him.

I am going slightly backwards in TCT performance, and I now just hope to end this next section at least 1% greater than last time. Maybe this section warrants a eighth Circle?! Arg.

nice game. well played
Congratulations, King!
How does a 1200 player get paired up against a 1500+?


P.S. - Yeah, I know. We both are last board (rating wise lowest) on our respective teams.
i had this idea when replaying your game. (from memory so might be wrong)

39.Ne6+ fN 40.Rg8+ Kf7 41.Rf8+ KR 42.QQ+ Nd4?? 43.Qd8+

that's a very attractive interface for the javascript board!

thx for sharing your game.
Hi Patrick- thanks for the idea - which game your referring to?
the game you linked to in this post.
oops, link was incomplete. i meant this one. (also linked in your post)
I see now Patrick, very impressive tactics for White. I'll have to study it some more, as right around there we both missed some possibilities that I saw afterwards.
Love you, think of you, love you secretly, eagerly love you, wait, feel disappointed,
try hard, lose, and feel sad, go apart, and recall.All of these are for sake of you.
And I will never regret for it. WOW Gold

My partner and iCheap wow gold anticipate reading through some internet pages weekly within the McDonald annotated sport e-book. It truly is apparent simply how much additional GMs get taking of their video games as compared to all of us individuals with less experience. And quite often GMs don't have to carry Buy rs goldout quite definitely wrong for you to make a new Ha?A coming from him or her.
