More games:

Aug-19-13  waustad: He beat Yair Kraidman today in 4 moves when the latter ignored that he was leaving his rook hanging.

1. e4 c5
2. Nf3 g6
3. d4 cxd4
4. Qxd4 Nc6
He must have assumed that Poetsch had taken with the knight instead of looking.

Aug-21-13  waustad: Today he's playing an Evans Gambit against Andreas Brühl at the Vienna Open.
Aug-21-13  waustad: With his win in that game, he's at worst in a 2 way tie for the lead at 5/5.

  offramp: <waustad: He beat Yair Kraidman today in 4 moves when the latter ignored that he was leaving his rook hanging.>

I have seen two wins of his that are over 270 moves. They are not worth reproducing as (i) they are internet blitz and (ii) the reason they are so long is that in both Hagen Poetsch gains a huge material advantage against a bare king, then manoeuvres around moving one pawn every 50 moves. Very very dull.
