I played the 1 min Bullets Tourney (One of the prestigious tourney) in Chesscube and won it in a style 🙂
Truly Speaking I didn’t played the tourney well :(. I had some or more misses. Have to work on it and improve 😀
Rate and Thumbs UP!
Hmmm… The tournament has just finished and I scored 6.5/10. I lost my last round game from a dead draw position in time pressure and ultimately lost.
Well, In the penultimate round I was paired with a IM. I was not having any problem when paired against him. I drew that game from a clearly winning position for me.
This is the position where I took draw by perpetual checks. Because, I sacrificed my rook for a good position.
I thought why to take risk by moving any other piece and maybe I would lose. I was having a lot of respect for my opponent I think…
Anyway highly instructive psychological lesson for me.
When I came home and I started analyzing the game where I missed 29. Nxd6, which was a clear advantage for white nearly +4 evaluation.
Well, It’s a lesson for me.
Black to play. I sacrificed an exchange earlier and after this position I was having some doubts. I hoped I can draw at the least, to save my face.
The engine played at 20 secs per move. It is a very good sparring partner.
See the game fully and enjoy !!!
This morning I crossed the 2700+ barrier in Chesscube, which had eluded me in the same way as Sachin’s 100th Century. Drum rolls please!
It was very difficult to cross but I managed to do it! Next target is 2800 in the next few months!
On a side note, I will be available for playing slow games and Game Analysis Service, any time.
You just need to message or PM me in Chesscube or through the Contact Form here.
This position arose after 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bb5+ Bd7 4.Bxd7+ Qxd7 5. c4 Qg4.
You may be thinking that I am losing a pawn by force. But you may not have noticed that his Queen has moved twice and Queen should not come out when minor pieces are yet to be developed.
I thought here for a moment and played 6. 0-0 !
