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

Missed round 2 and was bored after the first 3-4 rounds when there were only draws. The last 2 rounds I predicted only draws to express my disapproval with these many draws.

  OhioChessFan: Yeah, I almost quit the contest for the same reason. I still have a problem with the people who think it's clever to start picking only decisive games once they're essentially eliminated from Standard and 1-2-3. How do they not see how unsporting that is? And how do they not see where that would lead if everyone started doing it? I guess I should be happy most people have the integrity to not do it and try not to worry about the ones who do.

  lost in space: A new miniature from my blitz games. Too long ago when it happened last time. Sigh. I am getting old and rusty.

I was Black. Game was played last Friday.

1. e4 d6 2. d4 g6 3. c4

A surprise: I was expecting a Pirc or a Modern Defence (without an early Nf6)

3...Bg7 4. Nc3 Nf6 5. f3 Next surprise: Kid Sämisch

5... 0-0 6. Be3 b6 My way to play it. I know that 6. c5 is strong, but why to play a Gambit against a weeker opponent?

7. Nd5? Bb7 8. Bd3 c5 9. dxc5 bxc5 10. Ne2 Nc6 11. 0-0 e6 Kicking the ass of the Nd5

12. Nxf6+ Bxf6 13. Bh6 Re8 14. Qb3? Rb8 15. f4 Qb6?! not the best, but good enough

16. e5?! dxe5 17. Qxb6 axb6 18. Rad1 Red8 19. Bc2 Nd4 20. Bd3? e4!!

White will lose a piece (minimum) and is dead lost. 0-1

  lost in space: A miracle safe. Me as black complete outplayed in the opening during a blitz game last Friday

1. e4 c6 2. d4 d6 3. Nc3 g6

Never played this before and no glue about how to play it.

4. Nf3 Bg7 5. e5?! Bg4?! 6. h3 Bd7 7. Bg5 Bh6? Against all rules and bad as well.

8. exd6 Bxg5 9. Nxg5 exd6 10. Nce4 d5?? 11. Nd6+ Haven’t seen that this is possible, thought d6 is covered by the queen. Black is lost.

11...Kf8 12. Ndxf7 Qe7+ 13. Kd2 Here I thought about resigning, but...

13...Nh6! 14. Nxh8 Qxg5+ (the reason why it was better to play 13. Qe2 instead of Kd2) 15. Kc3 Kg7 16. Nxg6 hxg6

and Black is back in the game. Patzers paradise.

It ended in a draw in this position:

* Ein Mattbild, bei dem das Mattfeld und die Fluchtfelder des mattgesetzten Königs nur aus jeweils einem Grund nicht betreten werden dürfen.

Premium Chessgames Member
  lost in space: Hallo <whiteshark>, danke für die Rückmeldung. Ich kannte bisher die Bezeichnung „reines Matt“ nicht; aber wahrscheinlich war das reine Matt der Grund, warum ich das Mattbild als ästhetisch empfand.

Allerdings war das Spiel beider Seiten vorher alles andere als „rein", eher im Gegenteil.

  lost in space: An other short (but not very perfect) blitz game, this time with me as black.

1. e4 c5 2. b4 d5

my way to play this opening

3. Bb5+ Nc6 4. exd5 Qxd5 5. Bxc6+ Qxc6 6. Qf3 cxb4 7. c3 Bd7 8. Qxc6 Bxc6 9. Nf3 Bxf3

Maybe not the best, but a practical decision. Pawn up and white has a doubled f-pwan. At the same time Black is not behind in development. Looked winnable for Black.

10. gxf3 bxc3 11. Nxc3 Nf6 12. 0-0 e6 13. d4 Rc8 14. Nb5 a6 15. Ba3 Bxa3?

Much better was 16. axb5 and Black wins a minor piece.

16. Nxa3 0-0 17. Rac1 Rfd8 18. d5 Nxd5 19. Rc4 Rxc4 20. Nxc4 Nf4 21 Rc1 Ne2+ 0:1

1. c4 Nf6 2. d4 e6 3. Nf3 d5 4. g3 dxc4 5. Bg2 c5 6. 0-0 c5 7. dxc5 Qxd1 8. Rxd1 Ne4 9. Nbd2 Nxd2 10. Bxd2 Bxc5 11. Rac1 Nd4 12. Nxd4 Bxd4 13. Rxc4 Bxb2 14. Rb1

White has a slight edge, but not more.

14...b5?? 15. Rc7 Be5 16. 16. Bc6+ Kf8 17. Bb4+ Kg8 18. Bxa8! Bxc7 19. Rc1

This wins the game. Black is completely helpless and will lose a piece.

and Chucky, Reshevski, Hübner, etc etc.

On the other hand there are Max Euwe, Petrosian, eventually also Spasski, were I had the impression that they never were the best players in the world and became World Champions due to very special circumstance....Also just fate.
