Yesterday my opponent underestimated the Icelandic gambit. Or how to win in 13 moves.
At the club I had my first win with the Polar Bear. Allthough I mistreated the opening (according to my own feeling, not according to Rybka) it was surprising how resilient the pawn structure is. I have to learn how to keep the hostile pieces out. That's doable perfectly well, I just have to learn how to do it under all circumstances. Often it even proves to be possible to drive invaded pieces back, as in this game. But preventing invasion in first place is much better of course. You can find the game here.
I'm looking for a free chess client for someone for who Babaschess is way too complicated. It must have a simple possibility to chat. Idea's anyone?
