Had a good win over a tough opponent last night these are the games I need to win to improve my rating

Forced the Queen swap on 36 otherwise he loses the bishop to a back rank check

My all favourite game that I played - about 30 years ago in a weekend tournament. From memory I was in the minor section for players graded under BCF 130 (I was graded about 110 at the time and about 14 years old)

[r1bq1r1k/2bpnQp1/ppn2N1p/2p1P1N1/P1B2P2/4B3/1PP3PP/R3K2R]


Admittedly most is horribly unsound 14 Nf6+ is sound but Nxc87 is better and Qxf7 should at best win an exchange.

However, at about move 16 the late Tony Miles wandered past the board, stopped for 5 minutes wandered off and came back with most of the top players in the open section to watch the conclusion - it is the only time I have ever had a crowd around my board!

Another good win (on time, won position though) after a shaky start he played his IQP well but I was happy after the queens came off with my knight blockade at 26

Had a good win last night with my dodgy opening 1 d4 e5!! against a strong player who always plays the Colle as white, which I usually end up drawing against, and I needed a win for this club internal competition so took him well away from his comfort zone, particularly pleased with my endgame play

Both very interesting games, thanks for sharing.

I play 1.d4 e5 as black sometimes in rapid games. I think white should really go for the 'mainline' with Nf3 and Bf4.

Individual club competition but graded wouldn't risk it in a team game, I knew he doesn't like tactical games

I could never play an opening like that. Not brave enough.
Your boldness pulled through though. Was it a team match? Was it graded? Were there no consequences if you lost?

It probably is a good idea to dice it up vs that difference in strength but I would be worried that small mistake would be drastic. Think I like to stay in control too much. (less fun).

Sounds like fun - and a nice place to be.
Your game looked a good effort. Your first improvement did look strong. Hard luck!
Think I played Vasyukov in a simil (went down hill when there were only two of us left).

Analyse position



Instead of 27...Bg5?, 27...Nh3+! 28. Bxh3 gxh3 is much better and may even be winning!








Analyse position



Things are looking desperate now but 34... hxg3! was a much better try and may even work after 35. dxe8=Q+ Rxe8 36. fxg3 Qh6 37. Kf1 Qh1+ 38. Qg1 Qf3+ 39. Qf2 Qxd3+

At least our top board beat Vasyukov! Final result Russia 3 Scotland 1.
