    You may lose a lot, but you also get some nice checkmates by throwing pieces around.

    Lost 4 or 5 blitz games, then when I was about to lose this one...




    Throw pieces around and hope for some luck. That works sometimes 😀

    Nice. Do you like the catalan? It is very solid but I never play 1.d4, as I feel e4 has more attacking lines that suit my playstyle more.

    On the other hand your opponent needs to stop playing the stonewall. It's a crap opening.

    Didn't even know I was playing the catalan. I had just watched a video on the dutch where the guy said white likes to fianchetto the kingside. So that is what I did but I think too late maybe.

    That is what I like as well. 5-6 disasters then suddenly...BINGO!

    This was a 3 minute game. I'm Black.

    Looked like you were pretty much in control in that game.

    RHP's crappy PGN viewer cut that off [for me, at least] on move 14. Let's try to fix it.

    I was looking at it and wondering how you had won that game, found nothing and come to the conclusion that it must have been broken. Nice game

    To clarify, GP won the game. I'm just the tech support on this. 🙂
