This is one of my best OTB games to date. It was round 5, and I had to play for a win for my team (it was a team championship, with 4 man teams, and I was board 1 for mine) to have any chance of winning our class.
I still made some inaccuracies, but I really think playing on the site here is helping my OTB chess. I have added 125 points to my USCF rating after 3 tournaments since I started playing here- from 1685 to 1810 after this tournament. I have been in the mid 1800's twice in separate decades, but life and chess don't always blend well!
I showed the game to some of my friends at the tournament, and one of them (dstarr on the site here) said "Man, you play like Fritz" after seeing the last move. We laughed, and I told him I was going to quote him if I was every accused of using an engine on the site here!
And the way I've been dropping pieces here lately, there's not much danger of that!
