live blitz game 003

This my first 3 minute live blitz game on FICS. Fortunately, I am able to win after making some stupid moves like breaking the castling rule. Watch it and enjoy!

black's opening part 2 (kga - fischer defense)

This is my 2nd posting regarding openings. I'm always in trouble when my opponents use the king's gambit against me, especially in a 3 minute blitz game where time is very crucial. This study helps in making accurate and sound moves against the king's gambit.

Thanks to the brilliant Robert J. Fischer (1943-2008) for this opening.

1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 d6

black's opening part 1 (semi-slav defense)

Here's one of my opening studies based on my blitz games. I learned lots of flaws in my openings, so i decided to go over every opening that i'll encounter.
I'll start with the semi-slav defense, which i should have played on my last game. I will discuss more variations of the openings (for white or black) in the future.

live blitz game 002

This is a 3-minute rated blitz game on playchess.com. You can see here that i need to work on my opening. I'll be posting about the semi-slav defense later and other openings that i'll encounter along the way. Have fun!
