68 ( +1 | -1 ) Quickest OTB winIm talking about games against good players. What opening did you use and why do you think they lost.
My quickest was against a guy who was rated at around 2100 (otb) and played a lot of congress tournaments. I played the Cochran Gambit (Petroff defence). He resigned after 7 moves.
Why did he lose, because he did not stop to think why I had taken his f7 pawn with my knight on the 4th move. He just assumed I was a poor player and carried on as though it was a blunder. After the 7th move he realised his queen was going to be history before the game reached double figures and prompty smashed the board of the table and stormed off. This guy was the strongest player in the tounament and was the first round, he did not play another game
23 ( +1 | -1 ) Thats funny.I don't remember any time in particular that I beat a good player quickly, though I have. I did hear however that in the chess olympics their was a master game that was to moves long--- fools mate.
34 ( +1 | -1 ) Short GamesI recommend "The Quickest Chess Victories of All Time" by Graham Burgess. It has 2000 games which ended in 13 moves or less. Very useful for avoiding (and setting) traps in your favourite opening. Also makes you familiar with recurring winning patterns. Also nice to see top masters making opening blunders :-)
15 ( +1 | -1 ) Thats enough!I am making many mistakes, I should spend more time thinking about my grammar and spelling as I type. Thankyou for your corrections. :-)
12 ( +1 | -1 ) Sorryto correct you again but "thats" should be "that's" or "that is"! :-)
Maybe your home schooling is not working too well. :-)
6 ( +1 | -1 ) My quickest win...against a good player is when he forfeited the game :-)
3 ( +1 | -1 ) I though I had hit that key.typing is annoying sometimes---
27 ( +1 | -1 ) 6 MOVESI was the victim of my own mediocrity recently, losing in 6. 1. e4, c6; 2.Nc3, d5; 3.Nf3, dxe; 4.Nxe4, Nd7; (he's seen me coming now) 5. Qe2?!, Ngf6??; 6.Nd6++. An old one I'm told. It is to me too now. I could see the funny side of it after I'd washed all the pieces off the board by bursting out into tears. Very unseemly for a man of my years.
