Scalped an 1800 at a quick event !

Well, here is an attempt to include a game with an embedded aplet. This was last night at the Waltham CC during a G29 tournament.






He was rather upset. Since my Quick rating was 1394 and his was 1810. He slammed his king down and walked off in a huff.

I don't play too many quick tournaments...because ..I am slow! What I did find though, was that after all the tactical training I've done to date, tactical shots were jumping out like a singing sword!

Post edit... I am getting a java applet load error with ChessViewer ... how do this so it works?

Here's the game in pgn:

Nice game. Heres a case of the dangers of allow ones opponents knight to stay parked on the 5th rank.I work in Waltham someday we should get together and play.

I had the same problem with the ChessViewer applet. I found that you could not use the code they generated on their website directly.

Try pasting their code into a text editor and then removing any line breaks that occur inside the double quotes in any of the following tags:

param name=comments value=""
param name=movelist value=""
param name=prettymovelist value=""

It's a bit of a pain, but it does seem to work.

And by the way...pretty combination to win. Nice job!

Congratulations. That's the way to play rapid, just 14 moves!

I updated the list of rating progress of the Knights with your data.

14 moves, way to go! I always like to see some pompous high rated player have his head handed to him on a platter.
