    Games, games, games lol. I haven't studied chess at all ever . My studying has been limited to watching other peoples games and using their ideas in my games...

    In game the only change I've really made since the 1600 level is a systematic blunder check, a more objective look at wild sacrifices (I lost a lot of won positions by throwing one sacrifice too many into the mix), and a more confident approach to positional moves (rather than going overboard about finding the 'best' one).

    edit - one thing I should mention is that I absolutely do not advocate using this method yourself . Not studying is NOT something to be proud of like so many people of my type brag about.. the people that study are the people that care and the people that care are the people that go places... lol not saying I wont shoot for some Master level .

    Don’t underestimate yourself. It is not just the Queen sac, but how you prepared the attack step by step. Opening the a-file, occupying it with your rooks, move 24. Bxb5, which takes the Queen away from a8 (if …Qf6 or Qe4 then 25. Bxd7 and he is in big trouble as well).

    Or did I miss something?

    I guess when you put it that way it was pretty nice... never thought about all the moves that lead up to it though.. i just saw the possibility of a sac and moved my pieces accordingly .

    CC ... the strongest player I have ever played OTB would be rated around 1400.. there's just no one around here that plays chess extensively.
