    This was a blitz game against a 1588 player, I'm in the low 1400's right now. Not a huge rating deficit but I was proud of it. I'm sure the more skillful players can point out huge blunders on both sides - and I welcome such critiques.

    it was in a clan game, my first real upset, he was about 350 above me (1850ish)...I was pump...it's a little old and I think I have some more recent ones

    Try keeping moves together when you split a line.

    e.g. rather than:
    13. g4-g5 Nf6-h5 14. Nc3-d5 Qc7-b7 15.
    Nd5-f4 Nh5xf4

    Put the "15." on the second line:
    13. g4-g5 Nf6-h5 14. Nc3-d5 Qc7-b7
    15. Nd5-f4 Nh5xf4

    If we were to substitute "better" with "higher rated", my name could be on the losing side of several games in this thread. I just subscribed and joined my first tournament, and my response to the increase in game load is crappy chess.

    I hereby give any of my opponents free and clear license to post wins here- perhaps a little shame will make me play better!

    I guess if I ever find a better player, and beat him then I can post here....Cool

    I might not be the best person to say but - that does NOT look like 1242 level play to me.

    thats because its 1725ish play 😛
    I left this site for over a year when I was 1600s.. resigned all the games and the rating is still building back up 🙂 have improved a bit since I was here last.

    thanks for posting ice, I have a feeling you will bust this current gambit Im playing against you, and then that will go in the upset thread lmao 😉
