A 600 Point Advantage, Plus the White Pieces

….makes for a quick game, most of the time.

After losing in Round 1, and taking a bye in Round 2, here is the Round 3 game.

I made an opening mistake by not playing 4.d4 instead of 4.Nf3, but still finished with 52 minutes remaining on my clock.

Imre, rated 1921, “accidentally” lost to this kid the week before, was up three pawns yet apparently missed a mate-in-one against him, which the kid played.  Of course, that’s the danger of not winning quickly in the middlegame, and letting your opponent hang around.

  1. Thanks! I did save time. Two other games going on looked as if they should have been draws, but turned out as wins (due to blunders, no doubt), so left right away. Perhaps I will play chess again soon, but my work schedule is pointing to never.
