    Why I decided a giant pawn storm was a good idea? Despite the fact I won. Played this one in 05 I think. Just thumbing through some old games on GK

    Maybe you will famous for inventing the zillion pawn attack.

    I had a good chuckle at 6. g4

    On a more serious note: I would be quite proud of that game

    You did something amusingly nifty and got away with it!

    Why did you not play 7 e4? followed by 8 a4 and 9 b4?

    That's what my 5 yo son did against me in his first ever game of chess. Then he started moving the pawn wall to the 5th rank. I resigned.

    Fun game. Congrats, always nice when an attack comes off so well.

    Why not 20. Qe3+ though?

    Im not sure as to what you mean? If i go 20. Qe3 I lose my queen and there is no check. Unless I am missing something...which is entirely possible.

    Because I wanted the pawn storm to be on the side the king was going to be on...and that side happened to be it lol

    I thought it all looked pretty playable in a 5 minute game, you got quite lucky with black missing 21..Qf4+ though...

    Yes sir I am...lol

    Not that it matters, but 27. Qh3+ wins more easily (27... Nh6 28. Qxh6+ followed by mate on g7).

    Nice I never even saw that one. Appreciate it I like flaws being pointed out or missed chances. That would of been pretty brutal.
