    here is a game I played with a player rated 1761!

    please tell me where both players went wrong except for moves 5...f6? and 38...Nb6??(for move 38 opponent only had 20 seconds left!) If you have any instructive games with these time controls please post them!

    I played Sicilian Smaug an OTB game with a 30 minute time control (eventually decided on blunders in time trouble). It is on page 1 of Thread 79290

    I saw that game. Well this one wasn't decided on a blunder but it sure made the game go by a lot quicker.


    EDIT: Wasn't that game just 30 mins? Not 40/30 was it?
