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

  lost in space: Here a new game of minne as white, as mostly from a blitz game. I am posting here games were I was satisfied with my play, not necessarily a good game, when my opponent made mistakes. This is one example of such a game.

1. Nf3 d5 2. d4 Nf6 3. c4 e6 4. Nc3 Be7 5. Bg5 0-0 6. e3 h6 7. Bh4 Ne4 8. Bxe7 Qxe7 9. Rc1 Nc6

Not the best. Nc6 blocks the c-pawn.

10. a3 Nxc3 11. Rxc3 Bd7 12. cxd4 exd4 13. Bd3 h5(?!) 14. 0-0 (?!)

Better was 14. Qb3

14...h4 (?!) 15. h3 (again, Qb3 was better) 15...Rae8? 16. b4 a5 17. b5 Na7(?) 18. Rxc7 Nxb5?

Seems that this was the resource black was counting on

19. Bxb5 ( Bd7 is pinned) 19...Rd8 20. Ne5 b6 21. Nxd7 Rxd7 22. Rxc7 Qxa3 23. Qh5 a4 24. Qxd5 Qb4 25. Bc4 a3 26. Rxf7 a2 27. Rxf8 1:0

Mate to fallow after 27...Kxf8 28. Qf7# or 27...Kh7 28. Qh5#

  lost in space: Here from the same day - last Friday - a blitzgame with me as Black. Normally I do not play the French, that explains the wobbly play in the opening.

1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. Nc3 Bb4 4. e5 c5 5. a3 Bxc3 6. bxc3 Ne7 7. Qg4 Nc6 8. Qxg7 Rg8 9. Qxh7 cxd4 10. Ne2

I know 10. Nf3. From here on I was out of book. I was not sure if 10...dxc3 or 10... Nxe5 is better and decided for the second best option; I also thought about 10...Qa5 11. Bd2 Qc5 12. Qd3 and thought that this is better for white.

10...Nxe5 11. f4 (11. cxd4 is better) 11...Nc4 12. cxd4 Qc7? (better was Qa5+) 13. Rb1(?) b6 14. Bb2(?) Ba6 15. h4 Nxb2 16. Rxb2 Bxe2 17. Be2 Qc3+ 18. Kd1 Qxb2 19. f5 Qxd4+ 20. Ke1 Qxc3+ 21. Kd1 22. Nxf5

I like that move, even though there are stronger once in that position

22. Qxg8+ Ke7 23. Qxa8? Ne3+ 24 Kc1 Qxc2#

(6. Nd4 is better)

6...Qxd5 7. Nh3 Qh5?! 8. Nf4 Qg4? 9. Bh3! 1:0

Premium Chessgames Member
  lost in space: Here a position out of a blitz game of mine from last Friday. I was white and I found myself in trouble - at least I thought so:


click for larger view

Last move was 17...Qd6.

I would like to ply 18. 0-0 but I would lose a piece. What is about 18. Rxc8 Rxc8 19. Qc6! and there is no significant adavantage

What is with 18. Bxh7+? I pity thought is is no good because it there is 18...Kh8 19. Rxc8 Rxc8 20. Qb1? Qxe5 and Black wins.

I took me quite a white so see 20. Nf7#

So with only a few seconds on the clock it play this line

Without the perfect last round it would have been a even worse result for me. I was so wrong in most other rounds. Until the second last round I had not one right prediction of decisive games. Hoping for better times in the next contest.
