    This has been the most fun game in my queue for the past couple of weeks. It was a lot of fun figuring out how to convert the queen-for-rooks exchange into a win without letting a tactic slip by.

    All critiques are welcome!



    So, let's see your latest trophies, RHP.

    Very slick. I like the position after 25. fxg7

    Nothing special. At the end my opponent underestimates the effect of having his rook pinned to his king, and the effect it has on the moves that were to follow but did not happen.

    Just shy of 1200 games, and my last one was my quickest yet!!

    The most binding of binds I ever was able to pull off! He would have been better off if he had left the rook where the knight could take but he tried to save it and lost the game shortly after.

    My game here similar to one in OP but much more exciting 😛

    Not the latest - but one worth a look anyway.

    Not without its blunders, but luckily my opponent returned the favour, allowing me to regain the positional advantage I had got in the opening, convert it into a passed pawn or two (and blunder one away...), and Bob's your somewhat felicitous uncle.
