    My opponent ran out of time.

    I don't know why he thought for so long here.
    I was not playing good for I never play good at blitz.
    I played to a draw on another blitz game where i missed a winning move.

    That's not a blitz game. That's just a few moves.

    THIS is a blitz game (extremely trappy).

    Game in 3 Minutes:



    Trap 1



    Trap 2



    Trap 3



    Trap 5

    Interesting game. Since I have returned to OTB play I have been caught in some opening traps because I do not remember my openings that I once memorized. Here I can just look them up and follow a line that I think looks good. Except on blitz. Not enough time to be looking up openings.

    I would not have gotten in that first trap anyway, since I usually try to develop at least one knight first before any other piece. I still do not know what happened to my opponent on my blitz game, because it seems like he was satisfied with being a pawn up and quit playing with over 4 minutes left on the clock. I just kept waiting and waiting until his clock went to zero. I was not given a win though, so he might have gotten disconnected from the internet. This was only my second blitz game so I am not sure how it works.

    "The most interesting man in the world" wins chess matches by simply psyching out his opponents with his glorious presence so badly they can't make a single move.

    Rather than just start a new thread, I'll just throw one more 3 minute game in here. I like the finish to this one.

    3 Minute Game / Unrated

    This one was played around 6 AM after an all nighter, so forgive the minor errors by me.

    That was great. I even liked the start idea for the Sicilian defense that sort of turned into something looking like a delayed Alekhine defense. I don't think I would have a chance against you a 3-minute blitz for you are just to tricky with your traps. I would have fell right in to that trap for sure just like I do in my OTB games.

    Thanks

    Sometimes, I pull off a good one. Other times, I'll make silly mistakes too.

    You really got him in a bind after he overlooked your knight fork. It looks like things just went from bad to worse and he couldn't do anything right to stop it. He needed a couple traps and tricks up his sleeve, but was unable to conjure them up.
