    Ah right, I'm with you now. For a moment I thought there must have been a big Axiom identity reveal that I had missed along the way.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    His move (32.Qc4) is clearly the best move, according to Stockfish - although I'm sure most human players would rather have the simplification after 32.Qxe8+.

    Well at least no one has accused him(?) of cheating - yet.

    oh ok had forgotten about Mr. R. Sturgess long ago. Well, he bombarded me with a number of messages last night, first inquiring about the late start of the tournament and then complaining about his being blocked.
    Only then I put two and two together and realised it was the man himself. Hadn't spoken to Ax for a long time! Well, it's good to know he is well! btw messages were sent through Chess.com platform!

    Wow that means I did get play the legendary Axiom (in Lekko's invitational life blitz)! Now I just need to get a game against AC ....and I can retire from online chess with the feeling of my mission being accomplished

    I offered you a game months back but you wisely ignored. Since viewing your shocking end game in that loss recently I really don't think that you are up to my standard. I certainly would not be proving anything.

    Axiom made the same mistake that M Baron makes - not leaving pawns around his king as well Axiom not castling of course.

    Not sure if this belongs here or the Shockers thread

    White missed 19. Bg3 winning easily, as well as 52. Ne6. In the final position it should still be drawn if they didn't run out of time.

    Rambling rook strikes again ... 95...g3 was a blunder, after 96.Bxg3 it's a draw with best play whether black takes the bishop or not.

    Not quite from the 21st century (1904 in fact) but how can this position be saved?

    3mins+2 seconds with some disastrous moves surfing the increment for both players. (see move 103 and 142)
    Funnily enough I do know a bit about KQ vs KR which made my 127.Rb5+ incredibly stupid
