    First game earlier win missed by 13.Bxf6 Bxf6 14.e5. Also just 16.Qd4 wins a piece right away. Nd5 as played is also winning (and pretty cool) but 18...0-0! would have made you work harder for it.

    I think you played the opening well there but black's decision to trade knights on d4 is instructively bad on principle, opening the position when he has both light square and dark square holes and is underdeveloped.

    Second game just a total miscalculation by opponent who should have played just 10.Bxf6 (when he does get the pawn), which in turn could have been prevented by 9...Bg4!

    This shows that even 2000+ players can lose quickly(and as white)

    Nice. I guess the result is given as 0-1 due to a typo. Looks like 1-0

    Just like to point out here that the Oceania Zonal that just finished in Auckland had 5 prizes of $40 each for the players with the quickest checkmate. The fastest one was the well-know trap in the Budapest Gambit (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5 3. dxe5 Ng4 4.Nf3 Nc6 5.Bf4 Bb4+ 6.Nbd2 Qe7 7. a3 Ngxe5 8. Nxe5 9. axb4 Nd3#)

    Do not tell me the player who was white...eventually got a CM or IM title . This trap is very old..but it still works. In fact on chess.com - I have seen a fairly strong player (2300+ internet rating) falling into it. Could be related to pre-move though.

    No chance it was pre-move. Would you pre-move axb4??

    My opponent preferred to go pawn hunting before developing.

    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.
