Mate in 12

This must be one of my quickest mates ever in online blitz... the guy had a blitz rating of 1592.(for which his play kinda sucked) I am black playing the Scandinavian. I think the PCT training is definitely helping :)

Anything can happen in blitz. Which is why I don't play much.

He may not have played well, but you still have to play well enough to take advantage.

LOL @ tempo... yeah he castled early and I didn't castle at all :)

BDK: thanks! it was the last game I played before going to bed, a nice way to end the day :)

lep: yeah I try to cut back on blitz too, not very successfully though. it's so friggin addictive! I do find it helps ingrain opening sequences and certain tactics though. as they say - everything in moderation...

Nice win and with a variation of my favorite opening!

That was a cute one! What was your opponent smoking? It looks like after e3, he can play Bf3 instead of the horrendous capture. Ouch!

Chessaholic said...

AP: thanks!

Polly: yeah I know, when he took the pawn I was surprised... it was just so obviously wrong. But hey, it made for a nice miniature :)
