35 ( +1 | -1 ) Yeah I'm just playing to principles too. The only real line I know in the Ruy Lopez is the Marshall attack. It's 5:30 am here now and I've been up all night again hehe:) I'll just play a bit longer for tonight. I just didn't want someone making four moves then leaving. I hope you understand.

196 ( +1 | -1 ) Thanks for the game, Chris! Hi Chris, what do you think of the game? I have some words to say regarding this game.
I don’t like being in black side while my opponent trying to use openings similar with Ruy Lopez. It surprised me that many players use opening repertoire but get confused when their opponent diverting from the opening repertoires. No wonder, even world class players sometimes divert from the book.
When you let me to have a better advancement in the opening stage, I was thinking about exchanging all the pieces and winning a pawn ending. But things didn’t go as I expected, and it seemed like I couldn’t force material exchange. So I thought I have to complicate the position in order to save my position, or to be in equal chance. This would include some sort of sacrifices.
So there we were, you know the consequences. When you do a gambit or sort in order to force a mate, you HAVE TO be precise. Otherwise, your opponent will get away and you loose your materials. My first lost was because I sacrificed things in order to force a mate and I didn’t really think it through (Sometimes I think it is silly to have a 3-day thinking time, so that anyone can use that in any critical position!)
If it were important to you about winning or loosing, I will say that this game was not fair to you. You know why? Because I had analyzed all the possibilities off line. A very long analysis! You should have gone the long way of my anticipated moves, but you didn’t because you didn’t think it as serious as I did.
So this is it. It’s just a game, isn’t it? Sometimes I enjoy playing “blitz”, sometimes I enjoy thinking hard to solve a problem… And I like Felix Miszta profile. He lost many games against weak players, but he still has a very high rating. It seems like he really enjoy his games!
