    geez, that kind of stuff i why I play blitz.


    When in a single online session you raise your online blitz rating to the highest point it's ever been, having gained over 100 getting there, then drop more than 200 points. That's when it's time to quit. Or maybe, you should keep playing until you get your rating back up?

    18....Bg7+ mates very quickly.

    I hate seeing sloppy finishes, even in blitz games.
    Sentence yourself to 3 pages of combinations and one endgame study.
    Here is the endgame study.

    Katishonok - Markaus Russia 1976
    Black to play and draw.

    As both of them Katishonok and Markaus are from Latvia I presume that this game was played in Latvia
