This might be working ......

Beat a player at playchess.com rated 200 points above me. After being down for most of the game and harrassed most of the game. I did a rook sacrifice on a castled position with a followup knight check, queen check, queen check and mate.

The best part after running it thru Fritz is reading the comments such as "The pressure is too much White crumbles" Take that Fritz!! 8>)

    Maybe you should look after a more clean PGN-file. Arena doesn't now what to do with this.

    Nice job. Like your comment said, I think that the "Kb1" King safety move is prettty common idea after a Queenside castle.

    In a comment on King Ots blog you mentioned the site of Osmitz.
    I couldn't find it. Do you have a link for me?

    Feels good to take down a higher rated player doesn't it? I've had the experience of beating and drawing two opponents that were 200 plus points above me. This was an inconcievable notion to me before starting the program.
