What's going on here?
A. Howard is delusional and is chucking pawns away on a plan to nowhere. (Barry got it right)
B. Howard's a rank amateur and couldn't convert the initiative to save his life.
C. Howard's a pom and is bound to choke.
D. Boris should have resigned 3 moves ago ;)

Thanks big boy. Really enjoyed that. Look forward to the post mortem. Certainly 28 was a blunder, and from memory I got caught between two plans when you released you bishop on h5+. I had seen it of course (I don't think you had anything else), but I jatzed up my refutation.

With those words of a 1450 patzer engraved, I'm off to check the game on a box!

Thanks again - must do it again!

Aye! My comp says about +5 :eek: I did (really dad) wanted/ meant to play that ... but a choke or a fudge or a whatever is all part of it and that's why you are rated 300+ points higher than me! Nice one.

Interestingly (for me anyway) Kevin referred to a set of players who can win and lose against players rated both + and - 300 points either side of them on any given day, and I immediately put myself in that bag - I just have to show some discipline and lose that part of my game.

Any tips from any of the super coaches welcome!

It should also be well noted that Boris gave me a head start with h4! :clap:
In fact, he chucked in h5 as well ... and I still couldn't get a lead in the opening :doh:

Nice one.Don't feel too bad. There were worse moves (22...Kf8 for instance :eek:). Seriously though, it is a mark of a good player to know when to leave the king in the centre. That's one thing I've noticed from masters' post-game analysis - don't be afraid of ghosts.


Interestingly (for me anyway) Kevin referred to a set of players who can win and lose against players rated both + and - 300 points either side of them on any given day, and I immediately put myself in that bag - I just have to show some discipline and lose that part of my game.It's an interesting theory. Intuitively, I'd say players who play a bit loose and take chances (I'm sure you won't be offended if I suggest you are in this category) have a much better chance of taking down a high-ranked opponent on a good day, and a correlating risk to lose to a low-rated opponent who manages to withstand the attack and convert the material advantage.


Any tips from any of the super coaches welcome!Don't worry, I'm sure MB will be along soon enough offering lessons at a reasonable price!

In fact, he chucked in h5 as well ... and I still couldn't get a lead in the opening :doh:Yeah, not sure why I did that ... seemed like a good idea at the time. :wall:

I think you did well out of the opening though. You had the initiative, and kept the pressure on until I played a whopper (dxc5) which could have given you a practically forced win.
