    Is he your buddy or something? I wish my opponents would play like that, I would soon hit 2400.

    b4-b5? and Bh4-f6? Talk about wind-assisted chess.....

    I thought it was incredibly boring to be honest. I hate when long pawn chains develop in games, effectively dividing the board diagnolly in two. Your opponent should have easily seen what you were doing at move 29.

    Ok, let me know when you have a more interesting game Leanord. tbh maybe I shouldn't have posted it. It's not great, but I thought with the attacks down the King's side and Queen side it may be of interest to some peopel. in future I just wont bother.
    Listen mate, don't take it personally - I enjoyed watching the game and enjoy your contributions but I just thought it was a boring game because of the set up of the pieces. I like attacking, free flowing games and this wasn't one of those. That's all, no offence intended!

    Wow, that 3rd game, talk about about using your pieces collectively in an all out attack. Class!

    Vukovic says the exact same thing, Art of Attack has a nice section on pawn storms

    since my brilliant games thread died a slow and painful death i'll post this game here. I think that the tactics are rather awesome (even though it only netted me a pawn.)

    I'm black time control was 7 minutes
