    So I've had some personal ish happen in my life and my chess game has really suffered lately. It's very hard to calculate with a lot of stuff on your mind. I decided to take a two week break from chess and chess study and just goof around and play poker until I get my head clear. In the KG thread I said that I recently played one of the best games of my life as black against the gamibt, and here I submit it for your approval.



    I had a 2200 performance in this tournament. Afterwards, my personal life went to hell and I lost a couple games to some 1300s! I have subsequently resigned all my games I've got going and hope to get my chess sanity back soon somehow.

    Good luck with the search for sanity.

    Yeah, white properly used the queen in this one. I don't play the KG as white, but I freely admit when properly administered, it makes black sweat bullets.
