    In Thread 132739, Greenpawn asked my to post my favorite swindle. Rather than hijack that thread, I'll start another.

    I don't have a lot of really awesome swindles on this site, but here are two of my favorites

    Here's a game that illistrates what we were talking about in that thread. I stupidly lose a piece on move 13, but I decided white could still go wrong and tried to give him as many chances to mess up as possible. Finally, he gets greedy with 21. Bxf5 and bad things happen.

    Here's one against the current site #4. I get outplayed for most of the game, but set a trap on move 40, and he takes my poison pawn, losing the exchange. Unfortunately, all I get get is a draw, but its way better than the way it was going before that.

    To draw David period is nice; to do it with style is sweet! A top-quality opponent makes a good result a great one.
