A nice and clean win straight from the opening

Today an important win against 1781 with little or no errors according to Rybka. The Scandy rocks! You can find the game here.


  1. Wow a crazy tactical game. I wonder why he didn't try for a perpetual with his queen? I haven't had the guts to play that (is it the Portugese variation?) yet...

  2. That was one cold and systematic disassembly of your opponent! I like it!

  3. Blue,
    this is the Portuegese variation indeed. When I allowed his queen to a8 I was pretty sure there wasn't a perpetual check. Of course he tried to play for it, but he couldn't find it either. Nor could Rybka.
