Jan-03-10  SirChrislov: Thank You <> for uploading my game. Here I had black against So. Californian National Master Schloss. I was very proud of my position after 12...Rhe8 and I almost played 16...h6, before seeing 16...Nxg4!.

After the game, he said I was winning the whole time.(well, before 33...Bxa2?). Annotated in my profile.

Thanks again administrators.

Jan-20-10  NakoSonorense: Ese compadrito! Congrats on having a game uploaded to the database! I've been here 5 years and I am nowhere near of having a game here! Boo...

I'd agree with your opponent in that you were winning. I don't know if you were ahead during the whole game, but definitely after his 21.Qf4. If you had have played 21....Bxc3, you would have been at least a piece up. If he takes the bishop, you take the other knight. If he takes your queen, you take his pawn with check and then take his queen, leaving his knight pinned.

Anyhoo, buen juego y felicitaciones por tener tu propia página aquí! Por cierto, no sabía que tuvieras un rating tan alto!!

Jan-20-10  SirChrislov: I can feel it coming in the air tonight, (1.e4 d5) Oh Lord (2.exd5 Nf6) And I've been waiting for this moment (3.d4 Bg4) for all my life, Oh Lord (4.Bb5+ Nbd7) Can you feel it coming in the air tonight, (5.f3 Bf5) oh Lord, oh Lord (6.c4 a6), Well if you told me you were drowning (7.Bxd7+ Qxd7), I would not lend a hand (8.Nc3 0-0-0) I've seen your face before MY FRIEND (9.Be3 e6), but I don't know if you know who I am (10.dxe6 Qxe6) Well I was there and I saw what you did (11.Qe2 Bb4), I saw it with my own two eyes (12.0-0-0 Rhe8) So you can wipe off that grin,(13.Bf2 Qd7) I know where you've been (14.Qd2 Qc6) It's all been a pack of lies (15.g4 Bg6) And I can feel it coming in the air tonight,(16.h4 Nxg4) Oh Lord,(17.fxg4 Qxh1) Well I've been waiting for this moment (18.h5 Be4) for all my life, Oh Lord (19.Nge2 Qf3) I can feel it coming in the air tonight, (20.Bh4 f6) Oh Lord (21.Qf4 Qxf4) Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life (22.Nxf4 Bxc3) Oh Lord, (23.bxc3 Bf3) Oh Lord (24.Rg1 c5) Well I remember, I remember, don't worry, (25.d5 Re4) how could I ever forget (26.Ne6 Rd6) It's the first time, (27.Nxg7 Rxg4) the last time we ever met (28.Rxg4 Bxg4) But I know the reason why you keep your silence UP (29.Ne8 Rb6), oh no you don't fool me (30.Nxf6 Bxh5) Well the hurt doesn't show, (31.Nxh7 Be2) but the pain still grows (32.Be7 Bxc4) It's no stranger to you and me (33.d6 Bxa2) I can feel it coming in the air tonight, Oh Lord (34.Nf8 Rxd6) Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, Oh Lord (35.Bxd6) I can feel it in the air tonight oh Lord, Oh Lord Well I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh Lord And I've been waiting for this moment for all my life, oh Lord I can feel it in the air tonight oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord Well I've been waiting for this oment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord I can feel it in the air tonight oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord, oh Lord Well I've been waititing for this moment for all my life, oh Lord, oh Lord, Oh Lord (35.1/2-1/2)

Jan-23-10  SirChrislov: Moves examination is with Chessmaster and many thanks to users <OhioChessFan> for running my game through Fritz and <zanshin> for the Rybka evaluation.

12.0-0-0 Rhe8:

click for larger view

<Chessmaster: After 12.0-0-0 Rhe8, blk has clear compensation in development for unit.> <Fritz: blk is winning after poor moves 12 & 13 by wht.>

13.Bf2 Qd7 <Rybka: -3.22 for 13...Qc6!>

14.Qd2 Qc6
At this point, the master played <15.b3??> to protect c4, but then retracted the move(so he violated touch-move) and said, "well, that can't be good" and played 15.g4 instead. I don't think I would've been too content to win this way, so I let it pass. As you can see, it's curtains after <15.b3?? Ba3+>.

15.g4 Bg6 <Fritz: 15...Bxg4! 16. fxg4 Qxh1 and blk has saves a tempo on game continuation, which Fritz deems more worth than bishop pair. meanwhile blk has both ...Ne4 and ...Nxg4 in his pocket.>

20.Bh4 f6 and there's no good defence for g4. if <21.Rg1>, loses c4 to CM's <21...Bd3> thou it was better than:

21.Qf4? Qxf4 Being the exchange up, I jumped at the chance to swap queens immediately, overlooking: <Rybka: -7.47 for 21...Bxc3! wins more material. -3.6 for 21...Qxc4>

22.Nxf4 Bxc3 A symplifying exchange that wrecks wht's q-side pwn structure that fritz doesn't fault, thou it does prefer <22...Bf3> a little better than <22...Bxc3>

24.Rg1 c5 Fritz doesn't condemn this move, thou it does give wht a passed d-unit. maybe better, or equally stronger was <24...Re4>.

25.d5 Fritz thinks this was a semi-blunder and prefers <25.Rg3>

26.Ne6 Rd6 fritz's second choice. first choice: <26...Rg8> I remember discarding this because I didn't want a passive rook.

27.Nxg7 Rxg4 symplifying but Rybka suggests <27...Rxc4>, fritz prefers <27...Rxc4 or ...Rb6> the queenside attack does seem more in keeping with the position.

30.Nxf6 Bxh5 I knew he wasn't going to fall for <31.Nxh5? Rh6>

31.Nxh7 Be2 <31...Rh6> was another possibility which fritz rates about as same as the game.

33...Bxa2?? I'm still kicking myself in the huevos for taking the useless a2 when the nasty <34.Nf8> threatening <35.d7> was right under my nose. Chessmaster & Rybka: <33...Be6!> paralizes passed d-unit and blk maintains big plus. Fritz: <33... Bd3> was another possibilty where blk maintains advantage.

34.Nf8 Rxd6
35.Bxd6 1/2 - 1/2

I welcome your comments on this game.
