    I finally got to play a windmill attack for my first time ever! I read about this tactic, but was not sure I would ever get to play one in an actual game. Here's the game with a few comments (I was white)...

    Game 8661204

    Don't gooooooo chaaasssing windmills now,
    Please stick to the mates in 4 that you are used to
    I know that you're gonna have it your way or nothing at all
    But I think you're moving too fast.

    His game is fading and he doesn't know why
    3 moves took him to his final resting place

    Move the rook down the g file on white's 18th move.

    I always read the chess forum and finally have something to post! Not a great game, but I had just read and enjoyed this Windmill thread and days later got into a Windmill Variation (?) of my own. So I’m posting it here because it was fun!



    Tada!
