2nd game

Gilalva invited me to play another rated game. 30 10. I'm Black.

20. Rh4? No real threat.

27...b5? blunder. Rab8 is better.

30. Re1? I think Rxa7 is okay.

I think I am losing until 31. Bxd5?

White didn't handle the end game well even though there are a lot of times left.

ICC 60 0 tournament round 4

I lost one game in the tournament. I was at the 3rd spot before the game with 2.0 points. Thea leader has 3.0 and the other guy with 2.5 points. I can share the 2nd place if the 2.5 guy lost. There might be a few more people with 3/4 points.

19. Be7 is more interesting. 19...Rxd2 20. Rxd2 Ne4 21. Rd8+

20. Rd4? I don't really like it, but I moved it as well.

21. Rd2? blunder. Luckily Black didn't see Ne4!

21...Bcx4? lost a piece.

22...Ne8? Black has no idea where to go. Bxb7 is waiting. 22...Be6 might be another choice.

28. Be6? Actually this is not a good choice after 28...Rxd6 29. Rxd6 Rxd6 30. Rxd6 Ke7 31. Rd5 Kxe6

Has Man crumbled?

Kramnik lost his game today.

In the reality, it was an equal game and he has proven that Man still has a great chance in defeating a Machine. He played the game very well, just like yesterday, and just need to trade the Queen in order to have a great possibility to win.

But maybe because he thought too much on that, he overlooked a mate!
A mate in one!
Did he lose his concentration? Did he think too much on some other variations?

Chess is not just a tactical game. Not just a theoretical or positional game either. Chess combines all aspect of lives - concentration and physical fitness are included as well. Chess in a holistic game.

For me, man has not crumbled, but Kramnik has proven that Man is still the greatest creation of God; and that Man is not perfect and does have weakness. For that reason,

I love chess!!

Another Blitz

A lot of mistakes as well here.
Comment as you like.

Almost missed it

13. Rxe5? I was expecting that he will play Rd8 since it's a blitz game and one has to think fast. I will then play Bg5, well that's the plan. Better was Qxe5 maintaining the one piece advantage.

He did play Rd8 so I played Bg5 - but then this is actually a blunder. If Black takes the Bishop, I will just lose it freely and Black will also have an active game as well.
For example, 14...Qxg5 15. Qc3 or 15. Rxg5 Rxd4 16. Nc3

14...Rxd4 he didn't see it. So mate.

A mini game on WGN

White tried a queen attack which didn't work well for him/her.
A few blunder happened soon afterwards with a simple win for Black.
Please comment on the opening and the game itself.

ICC Blitz

I played an unrated blitz just now while waiting my opponent for the monthly tournament on the ICC.

I did so many mistakesin a fairly easy game.


13...Ne7? 14. Bg3? (I should have played Bxf7 here)

17...Bxc3?? 18. Rxe3? (since I have decided to trade my rook for a bishop and a knight, i didn't even think that my rook is actually saved)

19...Re8?? 20. Qf5? (Why why whyyy? Qxg6 and Black might consider resigning immediately)

I still didn't see Queen takes knight for the next few moves until it was too late to do that.

21...c5? (not right)

I don't have to comment on the ending since there were far too many mistakes that i should not do.

Wiki on Malaysian Chess Community

Go to this link!!!!

Gila Chess made a very great effort in promoting chess to Malaysian.
I think there are a lot of Malaysian chess enthusiast out there.
However, we don't communicate with each other very well.
I have at least 3 friends whom I know very well that they are good players. However, I never heard their names in the Malaysian chess community, mainly because they are hiding themselves somewhere.
I think with the existence of wiki, we'll be able to make chess even more popular in Malaysia - and to Malaysian who are not currently residing in Malaysia as well.

Anyway, please add some more links HERE so that we'll be able to give you a visit anytime soon!
If there's anyone who need help in creating a website or blog or anything, just leave me a message. I'll be very happy to help you.
