  jessicafischerqueen: Good Gravy!!

<Domdaniel>!! It appears you actually have THREE games in the database.

Here you are PLAYING AGAINST YOURSELF IN THE <dreaded Smith Morra>...

Employing the Courageous Qc7, which I really wanted to play today but I was afraid of Nb5 AND OH CRAP just Qb8 and Black is perfectly fine.


Sep-24-11  swr: So, what was wrong with 32. Nc6?
Sep-24-11  Layson: It's not really worse than the text move, however, after Qb6+, a knight must move back to d4 and black takes the initiative.

  Domdaniel: <Jeffica> - <PLAYING AGAINST YOURSELF>, moi? Never. With, maybe, but not against.

Ackshly, I've played both of these chaps.

  Domdaniel: In fact, Gerry Casey, now rated about 1460, managed to draw with me last year. I must try to stop saying 'yes'...

  Domdaniel: Hmm. Mr P McCarthy seems to be no longer active. But I've played Mr G Casey a couple of times recently - a win and a draw. In the most recent game, I sacked the Exchange, but couldn't quite win and had to take a draw.
