Is one of the greatest satisfaction for me in chess.
I only wished that my games OTB went like this, but alas people will put more effort into those ones.
This was a 15/0 game on FICS. I had 8:32 left and he/she had 11:19 left.
Since I’ve got here, it seems my only games as White were two Owen’s Def against 1400 level, which I think I can handle now, and two Open Sicilians as White against high 1700 level – one Najdorf and one Dragon; talk about catching no breaks. Then as Black I see a lot of “come and get me openings” from White, those are the hardest to play positionally.
That last game against the Bird, I found out that ..d4 with ..f6 and ..e5 to follow, even if I had played it right away, was too slow to gain more than equality (although equal games can be won/lost). One has to play patiently against those systems. Really, there is more that could be calculated in those “slow” positional games than there are even with open games and quick fireworks.
