Nice game Frank! Eric is a quality opponent and you handled him very well.

[x] GM Scalp +1

Nice one. Have to admit that I liked Eric's attempt to make sth happen in the endgame. His rook-distraction efforts were quite smart imho.

Btw,....I noticed that you tend to get way far behind on the clock =P

haha. It really is unbelievable. If there's one thing I need to work on in blitz it's rationing my time in the early middlegame. I always fall behind, whether I'm making a video or not. Then I start moving fast in the late middlegame and endgame (where I feel much more comfortable anyway). At least I'm learning what I'm not good at.

I am in awe of your preparation (spreadsheets and everything!), and I'm always happy when you put out another video.
However just to buck the trend I'm not going to say "great game" here. It looked pretty ugly! :)

But a GM scalp like Lobron? Who cares!

True. I'd hardly call that pretty, but I figure I lose my share of games where I play well out of the opening, so when I get a gift against a good player I'll take it!

Great game! The way you handled the end was very instructive.

they had a blitz tourney at the Chess Castle today in Frank's honor as we'll soon lose him to the cold white northern Minnesota Gulag - I am gonna try to make the quads tomorrow, and if I see him, I'll say hi

sorry man, already up north. It was a successful last little blitz tournament, tied for first with 21.5/24, which considering I had two games against IM Adler, two against FM Nagle, and two against that punk-kid, master Matt Dahl, wasn't so bad (in case you were wondering I won both against Adler, scored 0.5/2 against Nagle and won both against Dahl). I did lose a game against an expert, but scoring 17/18 against the other competition isn't so bad :-)
