    I found the intentional mistake you put into the text: In the game Cubas vs. Stupak you wrote black resigned while you meant White resigned.

    Well hidden I say.

    It was indeed 'White Resigned' and has been corrected - thank you.

    In a thread all the way back in September 2010, I showed a Scotch game I played in that year's New York State Championship which followed the same line as the clandarkfire - Augustus13 game until Black's move 12 when he pawn grabbed by 12 ....... Qxh2. I missed an easy win on the 20th move in that game.

    Hi Number 1,

    I remember it well, it is on page 2 of Thread 133847.

    After White's third move you said::

    "Never cared for all that memorization required to play the Lopez; the Scotch has given me great results."

    I replied:

    "Try playing an opening you have never played before by 'feel'. I think most of you
    will be surprised at what you do know and infact the less you know sometimes the
    better you can play. Fresh eyes, new positions, mind on full alert.

    Trust yourself.

    Most chess players are better than what we think we are, and yet
    these same chess players are not as good as what we think we are.

    (hey that is not too bad, quite deep, I'll use that again.)"

    .......and I just have!

    Here is the again, I've added the notes inside the game, I don't think we could that back in 2010.

    Number one is White.
