Making My Monday Feel Better
I won this correspondence chess club tournament game earlier today when my opponent playing the Black pieces resigned, giving me the victory by default. He was right to resign when he deid. He could see that I was going to checkmate him soon and there was nothing he could do to prevent it.
Position of pieces on our board when the game ended is above, and our full move record is below:
1.d4 e6 2.c4 Qf6 3.Nf3 Bb4+ 4.Nc3 Bxc3+ 5.bxc3 g5 6.Bxg5 Qg6 7.e3 f6 8 Bd3 Qf7 9.Bh4 b6 10.O-O Bb7 11.d5 exd5 12.cxd5 Bxd5 13.Bg3 d6 14.e4 Bc6 15.Nd4 Nh6 16.Bf4 Qg7 17.Ne6 Qe7 18.Qh5+ Nf7 19.Qh3 Ng5 20.Bxg5 fxg5 21.Qh5+ Kd7 22.Nd4 a5 23.Qg4+ Kd8 24.Rfe1 Qg7 25.Ne6+ Kc8 26.Nxg7+ Kb7 27.Qxg5 Rg8 28.Bc4 Rh8 29.a4 Nd7 30.Ne6 Bxe4 31.Rxe4 Rhg8 32.Qd5+ Kb8 33.Qc6 Ra7 34.Qxd7 c6 35.Qxc6 Rc8 36.Qxd6+ Kb7 37.Qd5+ Kb8 38.Rb1 1-0
And the adventure continues.
