The last couple of moves in the score are not accurate, but I finished the game with a skewer, sacked my rook for it somehow. I was also offering a pawn sac that couldn’t be taken. This all occurred using only 6 seconds of my clock time from move 38 to the end of the game (5 sec delay). I can only think of it as divinely inspired, since it didn’t seem like me. I believe I spent 4 seconds on one move, and 1 second on the rest – from 14 seconds to 9 remaining at the end of the game, and I was moving a lot faster than the 5 second delay, was moving instantly.
The funny part about this game is that I was feeling sick today at work, didn’t want to play, but when I got there had a couple danishes and two cups of coffee. I couldn’t pay attention to anything before then and thought I would lose easily, but also wanted to fight. Not because I felt like it, I was walking slow and stuff all day long, but because I wanted to.
The move I spent the most thought on was when I played 13.e5, I had all kinds of great lines that I had calculated with piece sacs and exchange sacs. I did spend quite a bit of time as well looking at 10.Nc3-b5, but I really wanted to go kingside, and that line is pretty longish.
I didn’t really want to win her piece on b4 because the toughest part of the game by far was defending while a piece up. This part of the game is remiscent of RollingPawns’s games, a grueling defense. Everything looks easy after the fact.
The hardest move of the game for me to find was one that was never played. My blitz move would have been, if 26..Rf5, 27.Re1. But then I found 26..Rf5, 27.Nd1, so that I can play Be3-f2-g3 in some variations (to counter a …Qc7, ..d5+ sort of plan by Black).
Yelena’s advice that ChessTiger gave to not calculate the same thing over on each move (look for new moves!), and that every position is different, is very appropriate to improvement for Class players.
