It’s nice to know that I can drop a piece and still win against a lower-rated FICS player. 😀
FICS Game 1
Here’s a game where I notice 19.RxR RxR, 20.Be7 just after I move, but I show that I can still work bad openings play out of a point.
FICS Game 2
This second game is my natural style when I am winning. It’s “small-ball” as they call it in baseball. Get one runner home by bunting and stealing rather than try and load the bases while risking strike-outs and double-plays. I also see this as Petrosian’s style – flashy is much harder for me to pull off OTB.
