Maybe you are drunk? Or maybe all of my wins start to look the same eventually? Or maybe you watched it live on ICC?

I think there was a game with a very similar pawn structure, or something, because the deja vu i'm going throough right now is freaking me out, i wonder if you or any of the other frequent viewers can point me to a fairly recent video where white pawns on b2, c3 and a black pawn on b3 occurred it would help me feel less crazy.

though after watching some 500+ of these videos i guess deja vu is not that unlikely

Freaking blitz masterclass!!

How do you like instead of 11...0-0, 11...Rd8 with idea to answer 12.Ba6 with ...Ba8 keeping the bishop pair?

Was impressive how quickly your pattern recognition directed you to the minority attack.

I dunno, feels a little artificial to me Zibbit, he's not forced to do this Ba6 stuff. Also didn't I seem slightly better after the trade?

Pianoforte is the full, true name of the piano. The name essentially means soft-loud which was the major technical improvement over earlier keyboards such as the harpsichord, which plays the same volume regardless of how hard or soft you strike the keys. Through usage, the name has been popularly shortened to just "piano".

Hello Curtains,
Pianoforte means "gentle" or "soft" and "hard" which to me is just what a piano is capable of, playing gently and/or more vigorously.
By the way:
pedone=pawn;
cavallo=knight;
alfiere=bishop;
torre=rook;
donna (or regina)=queen;
re=king;
bianco=white; nero=black; scacco=check; scaccomatto=checkmate; scacco di scoperta=dicovered check; apertura=opening; mediogioco=middlegame; finale=endgame; abbandono=resignation; patta=draw; vittoria dei bianch/neri=whte/black wins; inchiodatura=pin;forchetta=fork; attacco=attack; difesa=defence.

That's just to start you off! :)

Ciao
Chiodo

Yeah looking at it again I have to agree. Was just looking for a way to keep the bishop pair, didn't think it was better than what you did....just an interesting idea. Anyway ...d5 and the minority attack was a great plan. And to use that obviously it's best to get rid of the light squared bishop. You made it look like a forced win.

Very nice :) The ending was great, very entertaining... "make a quiet move and they fall for mate in one, every time!" had me really laughing. Cheers!

Btw, congrats on the winning streak and high rating! I guess making these videos regularly is paying off?

When I have more money than just for bread and butter, I'll be watching more regularly :)
