Facing a strong Canadian FM in this one!
Various blitz videos, either single games or matches
Facing on of the Chessbrahs in this one! This is from the same session as the previous 3 videos where I had good results so far but not without a good dose of luck!
Really liked this one. Although it was a quickie it was almost entirely pattern recognition. From knowing e3 was bad, to knowing cxd4 weakened the diagonal to knowing …d5 was probably right to the final trick which I demonstrate in the post-mortem. So almost the whole game required nothing but some wiring in the brain […]
The epidemic continues!! Why do people do this??
I get a lesson in the French from the handsome Moldavian International Master 😉
I am white in a Reti-Slav while I tell the semi uninteresting story of my night playing in the Icelandic Team Blitz championship earlier in the night. Meanwhile our 50 year old German FM opponent builds up a huge time-edge!
Getting our feet wet in the 3-minute autopairing yet again
I face a new move in the fianchetto Grunfeld (at least for me) and actually seems like with correct play black could have gotten an interesting position. I managed to very skillfully hang a Queen but fortunately only in the post-mortem analysis!
Had a little bit of an incident in this game that made my brain almost explode! JUST. WATCH. Anyway this was a 3-minute pool game on ICC, the Internet Chess Club and I had the black pieces in my very frequent Winawer French. Post-mortem with plenty of French ideas as well!
