Today I played a tournament game (I rarely play tournament games) for the first team of my club and produced a game I'm proud of :)

1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. Bg5 Nbd7 6. e4 Qa5 7. Bd2 dxe4 8.
Nxe4 Qc7 9. Nxf6+ Nxf6 10. c5 Be7 11. Bc4 Nd5 12. O-O O-O 13. Re1 Rd8 14. Qc2
Bf6 15. Bg5 Qe7 16. Bxf6 Qxf6 17. a3 Ne7 18. Rad1 g6 19. Ne5 Bd7 20. Re3 Be8
21. Rf3 Qg7 22. Qe4 Nd5 23. Ba2 b5 24. Qe2 a5 25. h4 Ra7 26. h5 g5 27. Bxd5
Rxd5 28. Ng4 Kh8 29. Nf6 Rd8 30. h6 Qxh6 31. Qe5 Qg7 32. Rh3 Rd5 33. Rxh7+ Qxh7
34. Nxd5+ f6 35. Nxf6 Qc2 36. Nxe8+ Kg8 37. Qxg5+ Kf8 38. Rc1 Qxb2 39. Nd6 b4
40. Re1 Qc3 41. Rxe6 Qa1+ 42. Kh2 1-0

Espacially 10.c5! was a good idea I think, I learned it from one of the peshka demos (middle game strategy or something like that) :)
After that it was easy, black couldn't develop it's pieces and I found 25.h4! and the following tactics. In time trouble I also made good moves, although I missed 42....Rh7+ 43.Kg3! when playing Rxe6, since I just had a few seconds left. After the time control I found it and my opponent, too, so he resigned.
Rybka likes almost every move by me :) (I knew that Rybka likes 7.exd but decided that Bd2 is better during the game)

Good job, do you feel that analyzing with chess engines has affected your playing style and now you play more like a machine? :)

I play positional exchange sacs since using Rybka, also it's easier with Aquarium to browse my repertoire as tree, so preparing for this game was quite easy and efficient.

The main reason I won that game was first a good positional understanding of that position (c5!) and then the right idea to continue the attack (Re3!) followed by a lot of calculation (the Ng4 idea) resulting in good moves like Ba2 and finally in h4! with the idea h5, to prepare Ng4 (otherwise h5 kills it). After he played g5 it was easy, everything I calculated was winning :) . Rd5 surprised me, but I kept cool and found Rxh7, which basically ended the game.

So it was a combination of strategy and good calculations that resulted in an easy win :)

The Rybka influence in that particular game was relatively low I'd think, but as I said a little bit Peshka influence so that I found c5 :)

Larsen once pointed out that players with rating 2000 occasionally play at GM level. The stronger we are the more often we play like GMs ;-)

I think I've played 2 or 3 games at a +2000 rating level, it feels like a 2000 elo player playing at GM level :)

My rating is still below 2000, I play not many tournaments, so I'm "underrated" :)

Still I feel that even strongest players are not that (I mean in certain positions it's clear that I miss experience or tactical strength, but there's rarely a position where I don't know what's going on :) ) far away from my level, I plan to take a break to play some more chess when I finished studying (in 3 years I hope :) ) before making my doctor's degree. I mean a chess title would be nice :)

You are rated below 2000 und feel that even strongest players are not that far away from your level? Sorry, but that makes me smile.

My feeling is that there are worlds between me and a 2700 player.

Oh, and there are so many positions where I have no idea what's going on.
Parent - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-26 21:06
Don't get me wrong, I know that I'm far away from GM level or even 2700 of course :) . Also the positions I don't understand may be rare since I avoid those positions with my opening play, which works relatively well.

All I say is that I feel that I could get much better than I'm now. I know that I most probably will never reach their level, but I least I could be on a level to put up good resistance :)

PS: OK, my rating is 1900, but that's just because I don't play enough games. My performance is well above 2000 usually.

Nice game - fun to follow. Thanks for posting it.

I am a bad player, and as such my opinion is not very important, but I like your 30. h6 to clear the h-file for the rook....
Parent - - By Felix Kling (Gold) Date 2009-10-27 11:12
sure, that's an important move :) actually it has a second idea, it allows Qe5 threatening a knight move after the black queen moves, so the queen has to take that pawn.

Also I thought about what black could play. Then the h6 idea is obvious, since otherwise h6 by black would make it difficult for me to make progress.
Parent - By Igrino (*) Date 2009-10-27 13:29
Thank you for the clarification!
So h6 has 3 ideas:
1) clear h file
2) Allow Qe5 with tempo (because of the discovery check)
3) prevent black's h6

Indeed, as you said, even without considering 1 and 2, the idea 3 should be enough to take h6 in serious consideration: it is a pity I am never able to realize that kind of good common sense in my games! :-P
