    I played these two on chesscube.com. I'm such a bad tactician... Can you please tell what I should have chaged? After first I decided to change in the move 8. I saw something that seemed to me like a dangerous attack, but it wasn't. Or was but I don't see it now. Both were 30 mins for a game.

    I may or may not have advice for you but we'll never know unless you tell us what colour you were playing as

    My guess, is that, he lost both.

    16...c5 instead of 16...Qd7 might be a game one improvement
    In game 2 sacrificing on c3 is highly speculative.

    3...d5 may be stronger than 3...g6


    I almost thought I was the player of the white pieces when i saw this thread it sure looks like a game of mine though i don`t recall it.

    In the first game you should not have let your King stroll off

    I didn't see the move. I simply didn't notice that the bishop will be protected and it scared me so much I stopped thinking rationally.

    Again I didn't see the simple bishop move. I was so happy when I saw myself attacking f2 and c3 at the same time. It's just too much for me too take so many things into account... This maybe seems funny to you, but I simply can't do it.

    I am thinking of it and I just don't see. For me it looks like it would transpose back to what I played.

    I knew I'm going right into the gates of hell. But I didn't see any alternative. Save a rooks' trade. But I thought It's very bad to swap material when he has such an advantage.

    Thank you everybody for your insight.

    I actually was inspired by this thread ...hehe did you know that it was inspirational...

    Anyways today at a coffee shop i tried it out and woohoo it worked really great.

    I played 3.Bb5 instead of 3.Bc4 for all the games though but basically i just played like the thread and scored super well.

    This is now a new secret weapon methinks.

    I'm still too much disgusted to be happy with you finding new secret weapon

    I`m really getting most of secret weapons from these forums lately.

    The vulture thread inspired me too so I play it now too.

    The various forum posters are inspirational indeed.
