    I played this 3/0 on FICS a couple of minutes ago. I was black.



    I put it through Rybka to see how I had done. As wild a game as this was, I expected the numbers to swing from + to - quite a bit. And boy, did they. In games like this, for me at least, it's really hard to find tactically sound moves, at times. I go with my instinct, and since my opponent is at my level, he seems to be getting fooled by the same stuff that fools me, so it's alright in the end. But I'm pretty sure were I to play the dragon against someone better, I would be demolished.

    Just some thoughts on the game.

    Perhaps GP will be proud? I played an attacking game, like he always tells me to.

    Maybe not. Maybe this game is just too damn full of blunders to be proud of. Dunno.

    Do you guys think 14 ... Nxf3 is playable? The idea seems to have worked out really well for me here. Is there a simple refutation for it that I'm missing? Secondly, is the position not worth losing material?

    Very pretty game! White went wrong with 20. Ng5, instead 20. Bd4 looks the best move. 14.....Rxc6 15. Qxc6 a4 looks very nice for black.
