    The forum seems to be slowing down, we need a few high quality blitz games to awaken everybody up. Wakey! Wakey!

    A game I played a short while ago, totally incorrect probably (I did no checking whatsoever on this game) but it shows the main idea behind my favourite opening variation, knight play on the kingside! He blundered badly in the end (Ng6), I wonder if I already had an advantage then, I have three pawns for the piece but his king can escape.

    I especially liked Bxf7, probably my Bxh6 sacrifice was totally incorrect but I think in blitz defending is way harder than attacking, so I usually go for these kinds of sacrifices.

    EDIT

    Haha, after reviewing the game for the first time I see I can play Qxg6 instead of Bxf7 Oh well, this game doesn't deserver to be in this thread

    Good game Gattuso, did you think of 12 Qd2 as the bishop isn't available to go Bf8?

    My loss on time to a 2300+ player when ahead materially ....

    38...Qb1 with the idea of check on h1 would have won quicker I think, he would loose his knight if I'm not mistaken (which I am often )

    I just want to have my <placeholder> here. As I feel this thread has future potential, despite it's current, utter lack of interest.

    reasons for placeholding

    1) french exchange game
    2) unannotated
    3) lost on time in winning position
    4) "2300" playing french exchange
    5) use of high quality as a description of this blitz game.

    I hope that later, I will return to this thread which will be multiple pages and have be able to take my placeholder spot and enjoy the drama.

    You can imagine when down to the last few seconds on the clock its a mad, mad rush.

    Clandarkfire posted this is the Blitz Thread.

    (there are some truly wonderful gamesin there.
    I'll bump it up if blitz is your thing.)

    He caught two players with the same line on the same day. A classic.

    Not sure if this is the right place but it's blitz & quality.

    White missed 16.Bxg6! much better. I think he needs some blitz lessons.
