in my final round game of the month against Rhett, I went for a weird attack. My attack was based on intuition, I had calculated that I had had nothing concrete but went for it anyway because at G/90, if you look at something long enough you are almost forced to play it if it isn’t an immediate blunder (for time limitation reasons). I say this because at 40/2, G/1 when I did well it seemed that most of what I looked at was never played.
22.Qg4?? was virtually the end of the game, but even after 22.Qh3 e5, Black’s two extra unopposed center-pawns carry through remarkable according to Fruit even though White can create scary-looking positions, in part because White’s king is no spring-chicken either.
33.Kb1? isn’t good, but Rhett spent a lot of time here to find winning lines, and we both knew that the pawn push could be stopped (Black has ample queenside and center pawns to carry the day).
If anything positive, I would classify this as an intuition-strengthening game. Once again, I had not had sleep in almost 24 hours while playing this game, not even so much as 1 minute nap. I felt fine, but perhaps it explains my dreamy choice of play a bit more.
