    Played on Gameknot a few minutes ago. (I'm Black so invert the board) 3/0

    (and yes I meant to sac the Rook. All part of the plan.)

    It's all part of the psychology of chess. But I would have played 11...Qd7

    That's cool; but isn't that a seriously huge risk? What if white had played 13. Qxd5? Or is it that you know this is a huge risk, but you find this more entertaining?

    Also, why accept the Queen's Gambit? Most higher-ranked players I've played decline it.

    It wasn't a Queen's Gambit. That opening goes


    Also, 13.Qxd5 loses.



    The one who took the huge risk this game was white for letting his K get so exposed.

    Hi Viv.

    It's a quick blitz game. They in the great shape of things then mean nothing
    and should be viewed as fun skittles, a quick knock about where anything
    can happen.

    I've beaten GM's in OTB blitz, I've lost to 1300 players.
    I only play blitz to have some fun, others I know take it more seriously.
    I want to win but I also like to see how far I can push out the boat.

    A risk?
    The only risk is forgetting or not being allowed to add the punchline in a joke.
    All blitz games are jokes and this time I was allowed the punchline.

    The opening was a Danish Gambit Declined.

    Okay, thanks so much. This one thread alone has seriously helped me.

    Good.

    Hopefully it's chess is fun. The better you get at it the more fun it is.

    This time the Joke from the same session is on me. I'm White and it's 3/0



    But I won't leave you on loss.
    This one is from memory, same session. I'm Black, spin the board around. 3/0.
