I'm new to all this but I guess I'll be joining now *shrug*. I guess I'll just let Kamoh sort all that out. I'm still not very well informed and will be pretty busy this week since I not only have 2 college classes I need to attend but also some investments I need to keep an eye on as well. All that said, I'm still looking forward to playing chess in some of my free time.

Oh yeah, also finished up with Amazgr8. It wasn't a complete blowout, but he successfully outmaneuvered me to a piece advantage, and I had no real mating chance left. I resigned.

Rainman DX vs. Amazgr8, 0-1.

Well, I didn't fare all too well this go around, did I?

We really needed all results to win the tournament, so basically that nails it in the coffin.

I just won a game against a guy ranked 1720, and it took me less than a minute (it wasn't speed chess, it was a ten-minute game). Obviously, I had to post that here.

The whole emphasis is on Move 5's decision to run the Kingside pawns up after my opponent's Kingside castle. I guess what I want to know is - is this always a good idea, or did I get lucky?

good openings all around, I'd've continued the Sicilian Defence he had going at move3 by going c3, but he obviously pinned d7 and opened himself up a castle kingside. Where you went g5 (move 7) I'd've personally gone d5 which allows a more centric defence and doesn't open up the outside.

Your move 13 was pretty interesting. It leads to 14.Nd6+ Ke7 15.Be4 Nc6 16.Nf5+ Kf8 17.Nxg7 Kxg7 18.b3 Nf6 19.Bg2 d5 20.Bb2, which wins a knight for a bishop. Better although is Qb6, leading to 14.c4 d5 15.Nc3 Nxd3 16.Qxd3 dxc4 17.Qxc4 Bd7 18.Nf3 Ne7 19.d3, which wins a bishop and a pawn for a knight and a pawn.

The same with his 15. it leads to d5 16.Ng5 Nxd3 17.Qxd3 Ke8 18.Ngf3 Ne7 19.Qe2 Bb7 20.d3, which wins a knight for a bishop. Better is Be4, leading to 15...Nc6 16.Nf5+ Kf8 17.Nxg7 Kxg7 18.Bxc6 dxc6 19.d3 Ne7 20.Nf3 f6 21.Bf4, which wins a bishop and a knight for a bishop and a knight.

He misses another chance at 17. it leads to 17...Bd4+ 18.Rf2 Nf6 19.Nxf6 Bxf2+ 20.Kxf2 Rxh2+ 21.Kg1 h1+ 22.Kf2 Kxf6 23.b3 Ke7 24.Bb2 d6 25.Rxh1 Bxh1, which wins a rook, a bishop, and two knights for a rook and two knights. Better is cxd3, leading to 17. Bd4+ 18.Kg2 f5 19.gxf5 exf5 20.Nf3 fxe4 21.Nxd4 Kf8 22.dxe4 cxd4, which wins a bishop, a knight, and two pawns for two knights and a pawn.

On move 18 I've moved the rook instead of his king to block your check.

And then on your move 18 you could've also played better.

Leads to 19.gxf5 Nf6 20.Re1 Qg8 21.Nf3 Qh7 22.Nh4 exf5 23.Kf1 †xe4 24.Qb3, which wins a knight and a pawn for a pawn. Better is Nf6, leading to 19.Re1 Qg8 20.Nf3 Qh7 21.Kh4 Bxe4+ 22.Rxe4 Qxe4+ 23.Qxe4 Nxe4 24.d3 Nd6, which wins a queen, a rook, and a knight for a queen and a bishop.

Move 20 was his massive downfall. it leads to 20...Bxe4+ 21.Rf3 Nf6 22.Kf1 Ng4 23.Ke1 Rxh2 24.Qf1 Bxf3 25.Qxf3 d5 26.a4, which wins a bishop for a rook and two knights. Much much better is Nf3, leading to 20...Bxe4 21.Re1 Qe8 22.Rxe4+ fxe4 23.Qxe4+ Kf6 24.Qd3 Qe6 25.Nh4 Ne7 26.c3 Rag8 27.cxd4 Rxh4 28.dxc5 bxc5, which wins two bishops and two pawns for a rook, two knights, and a pawn.

Therefore in your next move you win a knight and a pawn for a pawn. GG

now, your move 21 made me sad. Yikes! It leads to 22.d3 Qg8 23.dxe4 fxe4 24.Nxd4 cxd4 25.Bd2 d6 26.Rh1 Rxh1 27.Rxh1 Qxa2, which wins a rook, a knight, and a pawn for a rook and two bishops. Much better is Qe8, leading to 22.Rg1 Qh5 23.Kf1 Qxf3+ 24.Qxf3 Bxf3 25.c3 Bxg1 26.Kxg1 Nf6 27.Kf2 Be4 28.d4, which wins a queen, a rook, and a knight for a queen and a bishop. You had a won game before this error, but it didn't cost you, you did mate him eventually ;)

Move 22 I'd've moved your queen to g1 rather than g5

your move 23 could've been better. Leads to 24.c3 Qe8 25.cxd4 Qh5 26.dxc5 Kf8 27.Rd1 exf3+ 28.Qxf3 Qh2+ 29.Kf1, which wins a knight and a pawn for a bishop and two pawns. Better is Nxe4, leading to 24.Nxd4 cxd4 25.Bd2 Qd6 26.Rh1 Qg6 27.Qd3 Rhg8 28.Be1 Rac8, which wins a knight and a pawn for a bishop.

His next move frees your pawn at e4 from the pin. Leads to 24...cxd4 25.Bd2 Qd5 26.Bb4+ f7 27.Rh1 Qc6 28.c4 a5 29.Rxh8 Rxh8 30.Bd2, which wins a rook and a bishop for a rook and a knight. Better is c3, leading to 24...Qe8 25.cxd4 Qh5 26.dxc5 Kf8 27.Rd1 exf3+ 28.Qxf3 Qh2+ 29.Kf1, which wins a bishop and two pawns for a knight.

Your next queen move evens you out in pieces.

your move 25 could have also been better. It leads to 26.Qxg4 fxg4 27.cxd4 cxd4 28.Re1 e3 29.Bxe3 dxe3 30.Rxe3+ Kf8 31.Re6 Rd8 32.Rf6+ Ke7 33.Rxb6 Rd2+ 34.Kg1, which wins a queen, a bishop, and a pawn for a queen, a knight, and three pawns. Better is Qd3, leading to 26.Qxd3 exd3 27.Be3 Rad8 28.Rh1 Rxh1 29.Rxh1 d2 30.Rd1 Ne4 31.Kf3, which wins a queen and a rook for a queen and a rook.

Move 26! Zomg he isolates own pawn at d4! This Leads to 26...Rh2+ 27.Kg1 Rxe2 28.Be3 Rxe3 29.Kg2 Rh8 30.Rh1 Re2+ 31.Kg1 Bh2 32.Rf1 Nf3+ 33.Rxf3 Rxh1+ 34.Kxh1 exf3 35.dxc5 bxc5, which wins a queen, a rook, a knight, and a pawn for a queen, two rooks, and a bishop. Much better is Qxg4, leading to 26...fxg4 27.cxd4 cxd4 28.Re1 e3 29.Bxe3 dxe3 30.Rxe3+ Kf8 31.Re6 Rd8 32.Rf6+ Ke7 33.Rxb6 Rd2+ 34.Kg1, which wins a queen, a knight, and three pawns for a queen, a bishop, and a pawn. This was white's critical error in the game IMO.

Nice forced skewer on 26!

From move 28 White steps into the forced mate and you have him in the bag! Much better for him is Be3. dxc5 leads to 28...Rh8 29.Rf2 Rxf2 30.Be3 Rfh2 31.Kf1 Kh1+ 32.Bg1 R8h2 33.cxb6 Rf2+ 34.Ke1 Kxg1# and checkmate!

You wanted thorough, you got it.

good openings all around, I'd've continued the Sicilian Defence he had going at move3 by going c3, but he obviously pinned d7 and opened himself up a castle kingside. Where you went g5 (move 7) I'd've personally gone d5 which allows a more centric defence and doesn't open up the outside.

I beg to differ without going through all of the your analysis due to lack of time =/

Move # 7. g5 was perfect. Counter intuitive to the fact that black should be playing to free up his center. But moves like this put enough pressure on the king side as white has to lose tempo in making good use of his bishop on d3??? which made me frown for obvious reason.

Move # 9 . h3? More prudent was Bg7 or d5 or even Qc7.White shouldve taken on h3 immediately here. Followed by Kh2 making using of the h file himself by forcing a rook exchange by Rh1, <if in case> black captures back on h3 with his own rook! The queen on the h file has nice chances indeed. Such ambition from blacks side should be punished immediately.

Your move 13 was pretty interesting. It leads to 14.Nd6+ Ke7 15.Be4 Nc6 16.Nf5+ Kf8 17.Nxg7 Kxg7 18.b3 Nf6 19.Bg2 d5 20.Bb2, which wins a knight for a bishop. Better although is Qb6, leading to 14.c4 d5 15.Nc3 Nxd3 16.Qxd3 dxc4 17.Qxc4 Bd7 18.Nf3 Ne7 19.d3, which wins a bishop and a pawn for a knight and a pawn.

Why should black play Nc6 on move 15? when Rb8 or Ra7 is better and leaves the active knight on e5?.

check this out! : 15: Be4 Rb8!? 16: d4 cxd4! 17. Bg5+! f6

18. f4! (bishop cannot be captured because of the rook on f1) d3!!? (giving back the pawn) 19. cxd3 Nf7 , i think white can hold with the given pawn structure. I would love to play it further tho. :P No wonder Keegan was so interested in this game.

Just my two cents. I may have to analyze it further if i get time .

-> to keegan, remember the game we played, the one where i was white here : http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=4625&page=59

Have you gone through that again? ;-)
