    Game 3201981 -In the beginning I messed up, but there's a great ending.

    Game 3198519-This one is top 5 just because my opponent was 350 rating higher then me and I got a draw( Could have got the win too).

    Game 3149566-Grob opening that is hilarious.

    Game 3168189-The ending checkmate is crazy...

    Game 3099688-Two passed pawns!

    Here is one mine, a little bit over year ago. It is funny when I think that I did not progress at all... What an idiot I was

    Game 1788136


    Btw, my rating was 800 then! Cool

    Those were some good games there.

    Here is a funny one with some bold play where I get smashed ending in a rather pretty underpromotion.
    Game 2890364

    funny that you play the grob. It is the grob, isn't it? I always thought that was a bad opening move.
    Does the grob just consist of 1.g4?
  6. 26 Feb '07 22:26 / 1 edit
    Yeah 1.g4 is the grob and no matter what move you make following g4 it's still known as the grob.
    The grob is a great opening and if you know how to use it it can be very strong.

    I'm watching A GAME where white has seemingly just thrown away a trivially won endgame.

    Where white has nearly hit 1600.

    Sometimes taking chances pays off and leaves a good game for us to see.
    Edit: Never mind playing that again you can already say: "Been there, done that!"

    I like to call this my "nine dart finish" game.

    Managed to take all his major pieces without loosing any on my own, you wouldn't
    think it was possible.

    Its quite funny, I didn't play that well either and he had me under pressure when I was a queen and two other major pieces up.

    Game 3092361

    All of my "funny" games are usually bullet or blitz. I may have posted some of them before but these are my favorites.
    Funnily enough I play black in all of them!

    A 3/0, at move 32 I am 14 points behind by move 39 it's over after i win by promoting to a knight!

    1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. Nf3 O-O 6. Be2 e5 7. O-O Nc6 8.
    d5 Ne7 9. Ne1 Ne8 10. Nf3 f5 11. exf5 Nxf5 12. Qb3 Nf6 13. Bd3 Re8 14. Bg5
    h6 15. Bxf6 Qxf6 16. Rae1 g5 17. c5 g4 18. Nd2 Qh4 19. Nb5 e4 20. Nxc7 Be5
    21. g3 Nxg3 22. fxg3 Bxg3 23. Re2 Be5 24. Bb5 g3 25. Bxe8 Bh3 26. Nxa8

    Kxg2 e2 33. Bb5 e1=Q 34. Qxa7 Qe4+ 35. Kf2 h1=N+ 36. Kg1 Qg4+ 37. Kxh1 Qh3+
    38. Kg1 Bd4+ 39. Ne3 Bxe3#

    A 1/0 Twitcher where I lose a piece early and my opponent doesn't dare take an exchange sacrifice but it's already too late

    1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 Nf6 5. Nc3 a6 6. g3 e5 7. Nde2 Be6 8.
    Bg5 Be7 9. f4 exf4 10. gxf4 O-O 11. Qd2 d5 12. f5 Nxe4 13. Nxe4 Bxf5 14.
    Bxe7 Qxe7 15. N4g3 Be6 16. O-O-O Nc6 17. Rg1 Rac8 18. Nh5 g6 19. Qh6 f5 20.
    Kb1 Nb4 21. c3 Nxa2 22. Kxa2 d4+ 23. Ka1 dxc3 24. Nxc3 Rxc3 25. b4 Ra3+ 26.
    Kb1 Qxb4+ 27. Kc1 Qc3+ 28. Kb1 Ba2#

    One of the many 5/0 i've been playing to try and learn the Pelikan. I'm not sure if the bishop sac on more 18 was sound but it was certainly too much for my opponent to refute in the timeframe

    1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 e5 5. Nb5 d6 6. N1c3 a6 7. Na3 Nf6
    8. Bg5 b5 9. Bxf6 gxf6 10. Nd5 f5 11. Bd3 Be6 12. O-O Bxd5 13. exd5 Ne7 14.
    c3 e4 15. Be2 Bg7 16. Qd2 Be5 17. c4 Ng6 18. cxb5 Bxh2+ 19. Kxh2 Qh4+ 20.
    Kg1 Nf4 21. Rae1 Nxg2 22. Rd1 Rg8 23. Bg4 Rxg4 24. f3 exf3 25. Rf2 Ne3+ 26.
    Rg2 Rxg2+ 27. Qxg2 fxg2 #

    Another 3/0 where I flail around for a bit before striking on the idea of walking my d pawn all the way down the board while white just shifts back and forth praying for laaaag

    1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 Bg7 4. e4 d6 5. f4 O-O 6. Nf3 c5 7. dxc5 dxc5 8.
    Be3 b6 9. Qe2 Bb7 10. Rd1 Qc7 11. e5 Ne4 12. Nxe4 Bxe4 13. Bxc5 Bxf3 14.
    Qxf3 bxc5 15. Qxa8 Nc6 16. Qxf8+ Kxf8 17. a3 Qa5+ 18. Kf2 Bh6 19. g3 Nd4
    20. Rd3 Qb6 21. b3 Nxb3 22. Be2 Nd4 23. Rhd1 Bg7 24. h3 f6 25. exf6 Bxf6
    26. Bf1 g5 27. fxg5 Bxg5 28. Kg1 Qe6 29. Kh1 Kg7 30. Kg1 Be3+ 31. Kh1 Bf2
    32. g4 h5 33. gxh5 Kh6 34. Rc3 Qe4+ 35. Bg2 Qe2 36. Rcd3 Qxh5 37. R1d2 Qh4
    38. Rb2 Qf4 39. Rbd2 e5 40. Rd1 e4 41. Rb3 e3 42. Rbb1 e2 43. Rd3 e1=Q+ 44.
    Rxe1 Bxe1 45. Rd1 Bg3 46. Rf1 Qe5 47. Rg1 Qe3 48. a4 Nf3 49. Rf1 Nh4 50.
    Rb1 Nxg2 51. Kxg2 Qf2+ 52. Kh1 Qh2#

    Final one. Another Pelikan at 12/0 In a line I'm going to have to look up .. not as amusing as the others but i did kind of enjoy watching his rook flap around uselessly at the end ...

    1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Nxd4 e5 5. Nb5 d6 6. c4 Be6 7. Bg5 Qxg5
    8. Nc7+ Kd7 9. Nxa8 Qd8 10. c5 Qxa8 11. Bb5 a6 12. Bxc6+ bxc6 13. cxd6 Bxd6

    I can understand why you have frequently quoted that game. The endgame is awesome.
