The complete lack of a date, tournament, opponents name & ratings is
very telling. Anyone can rattle off arbitrary gamescores. I'll bet
that's what Gordo did here. What vague source he used is still open
for debate.

The following means the exact same thing as Gordo's post above:

"To anyone who thinks I can't play the opening, I had black he

"1. f4 e5 2. g4? Qh4#!!

"See how good I am?! Look at me! Look at me! I'm an attention whore!
Look at me!

"Now you guys stop saying I can't play because I just showed you my
game. And don't say I didn't because I can tell you what book---

"Nevermind. Look at me!"

You mean you are able to spot obvious blunders even during 1 minute
chess? I assume it was, otherwise you were just playing someone pretty
weak, but more likely the person just committed those blunders that are
so typical of 1 minute chess. If you base your estimates about improving
on this kind of game, then you are even more deluded than I already
thought.

Really, I hope we'll all get to hear the details when you play your
first tournament at a time control 1h per game when you'll have to
realise that on long time controls even 1600s play better than that.

If that game is played at control time slower than "1 minute chess" and
it's your best achievement, you seem to be very weak in endgames.

First, you play with very weak players and that can be an approach of
your strengh bacause only weak players usually play with weak players
and superGM usually play with superGM.

Second, you missed some very easy tactical shots like 15.Nd5 (A simple
"double attack" to e7 and b6). When in a game we see that kind of
mistakes I ask me how anyone can show it as a good achievement.

Third, I have seen a bishop in b5 with no options to move. Just have a
look after 23th white move. Next black move was not only a tactical
mistake losing a pawn but also a gift for the owner of that bishop.

-----------

As you have posted a game of you, I will post here the reference of a
ending commented in Spanish by me past year.
http://www.inforchess.com/estudios/f...esdeTorre1.htm

In my humble opinion that game was a big personal achievement in endgame
play but sure that a GM can see it as "easy" and has more difficult
examples in his praxis. I can add I think I never will reach GM level.

I hope you will find something interesting in it, and, of course, any
constructive critic will be wellcome.

It wasn't. It was a one-minute game.

Both players have the disadvantage of not seeing everything.

As for the bishop, Black would have had to sacrifice the exchange to remove
it, or die with his doubled pawns otherwise once the bishop moved with the
rook behind it.

Do you really think this game is in any way impressive, Ray?

Your opponent gives himself doubled pawns (it's not like it's something
you forced).

He then gets himself in a position where your bishop is weak, and his
knight has lots of juicy dark squares to exploit ... and promptly lets
you trade them off.

This moronic move on his part wins you a pawn, but he makes no attempt
to keep rooks on the board.

You may be a good chessplayer, Ray, I don't know. But this isn't a game
I'd brag about.

Nonsense.

Where, exactly, was the bishop going to move?

You might notice that it, in fact, doesn't have any squares it can go
to. The doubled pawn is, in fact, weak, but only if you can attack it
with your rook - and unless he gifts you a way to get your bishop out of
the way, you never will.

If he decides to move his N and K to allow you to play Bf8, then c4
hangs. He's happy to trade his weak b6 pawn for your c4 one.

None of this is particularly complex.

Like Topalov's 24...f6 in game 10, hanging an exchange to a knight fork in a
world title match?

There's a way.

That does not help.

Apparently, it is to some.
