Post My best game


This is a 45 45 simul against FM Unkavalo. It would wrong of me to post this without putting it in the proper context- he was playing 19 other participants so it's entirely understandable that he missed Qg5. I've also lost to him in this same opening many times.

Still, this is by far my proudest moment in chess. He only had 1:28 on his clock at the end which also explains over-looking mate in 1. I'm not sure I would have found 20. Rd1 after 19... Qc2 so I am glad the game ended when it did!

Congratulations!

I'm suprised that a stronger player went for such a sharp line in a simul though. Just on principle it seems an odd choice to me, but I have to admit I didn't really spend time looking for alternatives.

Thanks kamus and flinteastwood, I really appreciate it :)

Re- Yes, it was a sharp line. I certainly felt ''lucky'' to have some of those resources available after the fact. Still, it's encouraged me to play more exciting chess and to care less about the result.
