Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom
Commencing countdown, engines on
Check ignition and may God's love be with you

Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Lift off

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows

Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you...

Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the Moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there's nothing I can do
Now I am a traveler from both time and space

1. e4 c5 2. g3 d6 3. d4 cxd4 4. Qxd4 Nc6 5. Bb5 Bd7 6. Qc3 Rc8 7. Nf3 Nf6 8. e5? Nxe5 9. Bxd7

Much better was 10. Nfxd7 or 10. Nexd7

10. Nxe5 dxe5 11. Qxe5 Rxc2 12. Qb8+ Rc8 13. Qf4

Here I planed to play 13..Qe6+ 14. Be3 Rc8+ 15. Ke2 Rxh1(??)

(better is 15...Qa6 (winning for Black), but this is missed)

16. Qb8+ Kd7 17. Qxb7+ Kd8 18. Qxh1 and white is better

So if not Qe6 doe to Qb8: how to continue to win?

13...g5! 14. Qxg5 Qe6+ 15. Be3 Rc1+ 16. Ke2 Qc4+ 17. Kd2 Ne4#

Overprotection is a waste of resources and therefore idiotic

  Boomie: ->

Overprotection is over rated.

I just noticed your Major Tom lyrics. Were you a fan of David Bowie? I sure was the first time I heard his music on The Man Who Sold the World. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSH.... Mick Ronson's guitar is beautiful here. Of all the rock guitarists, Ronson played more in the spirit of the song rather than showing off.

Bowie proceeded to create dozens of great rock and roll songs.

  lost in space: Hi <Boomie>,long time no hear :-)

No, I was not a fan of David Bowie, but i really like a few of his songs , Major Tom is one of them.

Back in 2008 I was just thinking about my handle here at Chessgames.com and then there was this wonderful song in the radio - Major Tom (yes, back then there was radios). Me as fan of everything related to the ocean around planet earth was inspired to the handle „Lost in space“.

Beside the songs I like Bowie for his support to Iggy Pop during there time in Berlin. The saves his life - I think.

Quite happy with the result. I was too often wrong with the decided games. I overrated (in this tournament) So and Ian, I underrated MVL and Swidler

The fist few days very good (over 60%), afterwards 2 bad days (before and after the rest days), afterwards better again.

Next time hopefully in sum better.
