Another forum I post on (games and music related) had a chess tournament. So after many rounds of qualifying and playing finals, I made it to the big one and won it, some of the players weren't bad.

This was the game from the final, was 20 mins+0/side - I'm white.

Yep.. we both saw 24.. Nf8 as the critical error and that Rf8 needed to be played instead.

Someday I ought to organise a tournament for my main non-chess forum, but excluding the two rated players - there are a lot of 1000-ish strength unrated players there who would be pretty evenly matched.


THe symbols go funny [blame bloody Bill Gates] but you get the idea.

The automated dumb-computer comments Fritz gives on full analysis are rather more of a worry. It says Black's 24...Nf8 is "relieving the pressure" when actually Black had no pressure at that point and the problem with the move is that it throws away Black's spare pawn (much needed in terms of Black's pawn structure issues) and also places Black under pressure!

Black put up a good fight in that game until the first significant mistake, but then the wheels fell off in the biggest way possible from there.

Were the dollar signs bribes? ;)
