    The other thread seems to be closed. It was a place to post interesting blitz games from the RHP blitz room.

    I just finished this one (time control 5 minutes + 2 seconds):



    I was hoping for 20.Nb6 so that I could sac the rook on a8.

    20.Nb6 gxh3 21.Nxa8


    And now 21. ... Qg6



    22.g3 fxg3



    This looks very juicy and quite worth a try in blitz! It would have been very fun to try it out.

    As I was flipping through the moves, 21...Nxe4 stopped me. I thought to myself that White needs to play carefully here and I would need time to work this out. This is where I would have used too much time to be playing blitz. It looks like a normal Kings Indian Defense and they can be tricky and I do not know the variations as deep as this. I will stick to slow chess. Seems to be a good game for blitz though. I wish you better luck on the next go around.

    P.S. I now see you were Black. I had thought you were White. Good job!

    White just sort of fell apart, as played. At least in your line he would have had a rook for his sufferings! I still think your attack would be enough to win.

    Here's a different sort of game:

    I wanted a pawn on f6, and my f-pawn, g-pawn and e-pawn all obliged in turn!

    Bog standard Greek Gift. I've no idea if it was sound or not, all I care about is that it works in 99% of blitz games!
