Hello dear followers and fans and critics!! Here are two games I played on my sister's computer against the dangerous computer program Chess Titans when my own computer broke down and I was in dire need of some chess vitamins.
Not sure why it all went haywire. Probably the thing doesn't like threefold repetitions. I could probably have carried out that attack more dashingly too... not the best effort from either side, I lost the thread somewhere. I discovered that I had inadvertedly played against level 8 instead of against full force level 10, so I adjusted the settings, which the thing took as an excuse to take forever for every lousy move... leading to this game:
OK, good for my ego anyway, as I've been playing really quite dreadful unambitious-looking chess these months (with the occasional bright moment resulting in a win, but overall nothing of special importance - nor good enough to share). Despite everything, I played one nice Najdorf attack after an incorrect novelty from my side (of course I didn't know it was still theory) against a French IM, but it seems I dislocated the gamescore migrating the data from my old loyal laptop to my new one! Too bad. ...But!! Especially for you here's an attempted reconstruction with admittedly probably not the most accurate move order:
[update: I found the real game after all. I played it on the second day I possessed my new laptop. And what a beauty it is!]
Hello friends. I haven't been able to play much these last months, and after some discussion I have unanimously decided to stop the monthly updates as you may or may not have noticed. The standard signs of a dying blog indeed... it has happened many times before this blog, and it will continue happening many times in the future.
Here are a few games I've played during these months, where my blunt unsophisticated playing style resulted in my much-beloved "dynamic wins" after a successful operation against the opponent's king. Playing strength of the opponent doesn't matter much, as long as they neglect making the few consolidating moves that are needed. If they make the few prophylaxis moves they should be making, I still play like a baby. If they don't, my play can look all right.
