    I love how when a GM says blundered, it's when they mess up their structure a bit and maybe lose 0.1 of an advantage, but when I say I blundered, it's when I left my queen hanging with checkmate in 2 after sacrificing my rook thinking I made a brilliant move.

      I think it was classy from Levy not force a time scramble where pieces fly around the board. I mean maybe he took his time and didn't see a way to prolong the game, but it felt like he respected the lost position and didn't force it.

      It's still impressive, but that had been her plan for a while in the position, it's not like she came up with that on that moment - she had been preparing that move for a while at that point

    • Hanji
      Hanji Hace 2 meses +23

      @Lucas Pereira Lima if she had been preparing the rook sack she wouldve played it after white played ne7 right? That was the most optimal time to play it

    • Lucas Pereira Lima
      Lucas Pereira Lima Hace 2 meses +42

      @Hanji She panicked a bit when she realized she had overlooked a check on her own king, so that may be it, but in general that seems to have been her plan for the whole time, otherwise putting the queen there to be attacked would've been rather dangerous

    • ShadowRegis

  • Monroe Truss

    I'm 71 years old and for years I haven't had anyone to play. I learned chess at a children's home and became the best player there. When I older throughout my twenties and early thirties I taught chess and played every chance I had. Where I worked as a machinist for several years I taught many peers how to play and at lunch and breaks we would have a continuing game. No one ever messed with an ongoing game and left it set up on the table. At one point after many months maybe a couple of years, I had not lost a game. The day came and it looked like I was to see my first loss. Management let them shut down their machines and come to the lunchroom to witness. I'd like to think most employees liked me, but most were wanting to see me lose. I was down and even I thought, well all things come to an end. Then he advanced a pawn, and I took it with the pawn en passant rule. I was accused of cheating till I showed them in the rule book, a book I gave everyone wanting to play. I didn't lose that day, but later it happened more than once, and I have a firm belief there many excellent players that have not been introduced. I have beat several masters and taken a couple of grandmasters to draws, and not humiliated, I miss having someone to play chess with.

      @Corb I think 5 second vs 2 second bonus time would've made a huge difference. 2 second can work online, but over the board you just need more time to move your hands.

      Exactly. Just when it's getting good, the time runs out.

    It's amazing to watch a GM because they make moves that you keep looking at, and your mind goes like: "What the hell is that?"
    Like when she went Nh6 (in the first game) or Rc2 (in the second one). Even Gotham, who's really good, was impressed.

    omg on the first game I felt so bad at the end when the bar went so far in favor for Levi because she forgot to give the check and thought he would win and then she went crazy did all this brilliant chess to win the game.

    She places her knights in weakness to take bishops of the board early and he fell for it the second time. Bravo, GM mom!

    I'm a terrible chess player, but I was amazed to see how many moves your mom did that I would have done too. She even did them after thinking very long, when I would have played them impulsively. And probably for much more superficial reasons than your mom played them, but still, I feel pretty good after seeing this.

    Iit looks like Levy moves quickly and confidently and Pia is scrambling, until you realize she's actually checkmating and flagging him at the same time.
