    Your games are the most fun, at least the ones you post. It seems like neither you nor your opponent ever have any concern for safety or material, just trying to get the king.

    None of the following detracts from your successful attack, but here are a few places I think I'd have played differently:

    8. ... Qxd5+ followed by QxB leaves you two clear pieces up as opposed to allowing Nc7+.

    Once the white king goes to b5, my instinct is to try to trap him there rather than giving check. If 13. ... Qf4 instead of Bd7+, you put the king in a box, threaten mate by Qa4 or Qb5 and Bd7+ could only be met by giving up the queen. Too hard to stop all these threats.

    On move 20 there is a mate in 6, 20. ... Qe3+ 21. Kc2 Nb4+ 22. Kb1 Bf5+ 23. Bd3 Bxd3+ 24. Qxd3 Qxd3+ 25. Kc1 Be3++.

    Fritz agrees with you on move 8. I have to take a deeper look at this. I am sure you see a selective sample of posted games where my attacks work. I have plenty which fizzle. I do like lines that have complications ie traxler and King Gambit.The king gambit except a book player tends to be wild. as for this game I felt I had missed some things I felt getting my rook in the game earlier would be of help. I was afraid at times he would get behind the pawns on the queen side taking the steam out of my attack. Thanks for your comments

    Beautyful sac on f7! I also enjoy your wild games a lot. Especially now since I just figured out how to use the pgn viewer. :)

    And yes, both Loomis and Patrick are great guys to have around when it comes to analysis. The often see things that I would have never thought of.

    You know how when you google yourself you never know what's going to show up ... i never expected to see one of my more awful chess performances on a blog somewhere!

    PS For anyone reading this - I'm sure I've beaten Takchess as well.
