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!
And if you did not spent quality time (15-20 min max) on solving a good combination then you would have lost an important aspect of your training i.e Tactical Accuracy. When we solve combination’s fast we tend to lose out on accuracy which is the most important reason for doing it in the first place!!
WHY DO WE SOLVE COMBINATION’S ?
We all know that we must solve combination’s daily. Why ? Well it –
1.Help’s in development of intuition.
2.Help’s in understanding the role of the chess-pieces in a different light.
With his last move 55.Re1-d1 (diagram) White had initiated a deflection maneuver to promote his passed h-pawn.
The capture 55…Rxd1 now leads to …
A)… victory for Black
B)… perpetual check
Find the right continuation after black’s 55…Rxd1.. Is it a win for black or a draw?

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.
See the game fully and enjoy !!!
