    Here's mine. Kudos to Valinkas Knight, whose rating is about 600 points below mine...



    And the moral of the story is - concentrate!

    Fun game! Live by the Grob, die by the Grob

    Not sure what fritz version you are using, but Fritz 13, considers 1. ...Nf6 to be the 17th best response to 1. g4. To me it is one of the worse responses that you can do. Was surprised when you wrote in the comments that is Fritz's choice.

    I didn't go through all my losses, but here's one that grabbed my eye. A game against rbmorris almost exactly six years ago. He blew me away with a variation of the fried liver, I believe.

    Aah, I'm still on an old Fritz. It's enough that it can beat me. I don't need to be beaten in the most clinical way possible!

    My worst defeat was probably my very first game on the site. It was a festival of blunders. I've been defeated more impressively in later games, but never with such awful play from my side.

    Similar to Richard, the oldies are the most heinous. This one smarts even more because galapog's a mate. The O-O-O is so bad it is comical
