    As the original thread is quite dead,
    what's about a new one?

    Are there any great games out there?
    Are there early group winners?
    Are there some davids against goliath with more than
    300 points difference, where david made the game?

    There are many, I hope players start posting them so i dont have to go through all the games again. My group (90) is interesting, all the middle top players are moving like crazy, I am 36/36 so far, all against the top 6 outta 7 players, the lower boards are actually playing smarter, slower, and hopefully stronger.

    I enjoyed this 13 move game:Game 5829892
    Black brings his Queen out early to capture both white rooks on their original squares.

    I'm not in any way, shape or form suggesting that I'm a 'goliath' but I'm very worried in a couple of my games!
    I approached this year with the proper mindset of not taking any players for granted - avoiding looking for cheap wins etc - but I still find myself in a couple of losing positions I think. I will more than happily post them if and when I lose....sob sob
    IYTIA posted some 'shocks' on the original thread I believe - around page 2/3 before it degenerated into a squabble.

    I was really surprised when looking through the grioups was that there were quite some people who had given up all games unplayed or didn't start...

    They're just scared of the pressure.
