Ha! A Classic. What an asshead. I really am a class act.
I know it was an awful move and I'm meant to be a good player.
I cannot believe that I would play such a move. Even double blitzing.
I know I don't give endings the study they deserve (because I rarely see them).
But am I really that bad at endings?
So I go back to the game and look at it again to let the awfulness of my move sink in.
I go into my game archive file to play out the game.
I never played it!!
I write my moves down in a note book, of course blitzing over a couple games
I never bothered. After the game I wrote down the moves from memory
(memory that's a laugh.) and I used my note book to score up the game in the blog.
So after the mini-blitz had finished.
We started round about here about here.
And I know we finished here.
I had looked at other game and worked out the win.
I then set up this game on the board and I filled in the moves.
Infact if you look at the game in the blog from moves 23-29 you can see
I am heading for that 2nd diagram. I sat here looking at it long enough
waiting for him to move that's when I realised I should never have let him
get an active Rook.
Here is what really happened in the game.
Now what do I do?
Do I correct the blog or let it stand as a testiment to me being an idiot?
And what about the Cricket lad. He must have seen the blog as well and realised
(or not) some of the moves were 'funny'.
What a clown. What you get is me warts and all.
Check everything. Chandlerism's (a word banded about with great frequency
amongst my friends.) are everywhere.
