    I didn't take my chess seriously when I first join Rhp.

    It was meaningless like blitz to me. Then I saw the light.

    It wasn't like blitz, it was like OTB!

    not neccessarily the strongest opponent, but this game sticks in my mind

    Game 2932050

    Despite my poor tactical play, this game is weird in the sense that White's e pawn never moves! A rare occurence, I would certainly say.

    Probably not an impressive game to you guys but I liked it. I learned a bit and felt like I was improving by seeing my mistakes and some of his.

    My favourite game from the 2006 final round.

    Game 2548749

    As Black, mustering a deadly force while White naps.

    OTB from a few years ago. I got a lot of cooperation from my opponent as you can see. I spent around 20 minutes checking and re-checking before making the rook sacrifice on move 17. The way my opponent had been playing I doubted that he would see 17...c6. If he takes the rook as in the game it is not really a sacrifice as it wins by force.

    When I showed this game to Tim Mcgrew (chesscafe writer who tought me the BDG) he saw Rxf5 as soon as I had moved h5!

    I have a classic BDG 'swindle' that I like too. I will have to dig it up.

    Game 2277262

    I thought this one had an interesting finish, with the queen rushing in to give checkmate with only a lowly pawn as her support.
