Very nice play from Gentlewhisper. It's not always so easy to appreciate tactics when they're at your own expense. I enjoyed your enthusiasm for the manner of your demise!

"I don't like bishops", "he's very vicious with his bishops" - looks like GW has a psychological edge over you on that front! :)

Loved the audibles - although some seemed familiar I couldn't place them - are they all from the same cartoon series (forgive my ignorance if stupid question)?

Ah yes Paul Morphy - always inspiring...

Thanks eimaj!

I enjoy good play whether I am winning or losing! :)

There are two people that I know you don't want to have the bishop pair: Gentlewhisper and Armis! If you do, You and just bend over and kiss your ass goodbye...LOL!

Given your accent on your videos, it sounds like your from the UK. You might not recognize the very old American Slapstick comedians, The Three Stooges. Here are some clips if you are interested:

Comic relief is a good thing every now and then, don't you think? :)

I think I quickly watched all 400 of Morphy's games on a database that I downloaded years back. I always like to get my dose of Morphy when I need a good kick in the butt! Kind of reminds me of the Skittles tubesock man!

Thanks again for watching and commenting eimaj!

Cheers and Play Well!

I always like to be featured in your videos :)

I have to admit I wasn't sure about the outcome of the 29...Nf4 stuff. I remember putting some time into that move though especially as I hadn't expected 28 Nc5 which looked pretty cool. I calculated til 32....Rxb3 but wasn't sure if that position is winnable. I think white's follow up moves were a bit careless, but as you said yourself you lost focus (probably because you already assumed you are losing).
One thing that made it easier to find it was that I was constantly looking for some moves to utilize the d-pawn pin which was available after 21...Rad8 (I think preventing Rd8 might have been the idea behind Fritz's Bg5? dunno)

Quite scary to see that Fritz gives white a constant +.5 to even +1 throughout the whole opening O_O

I am always up a pawn with White in my openings! (hehehe) It's my late middlegame conversion to endgames that kill me, that's why I search and destroy early...or try to ... and end up going down in flames. But I always go down with "guns a blazin"!

Put on your battle gear and grab your sword and shield ... No more "chicken-shit" chess from me!

Good to play AGain my Friend!

Nice tactic. I didn't spot Nf4 either. In the endgame, btw, you might have tried Bb6 instead of Bd6, as Bb6 will freeze black's pieces. I don't think it draws, but it makes life more difficult for black.
