The Death stroke of AL

As it may be encouraging for the lower rated players (including me), I posted some blitz games against a much stronger opponent. "Where there is a will there is a way" or as a Roman senator once said: "Carthago will be destroyed"

I first start with a loss against AL rated on WCN 2346 - 2401. He is no fide master, IM or GM. The point is he is about 800 points stronger than I am. So he should have an easy play.

First encounter

Lewis,Andy - Montse, 08.03.2005
1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5 4.cxb5 a6 5.bxa6 Bxa6 6.Nc3 d6 7.e4 Bxf1 8.Kxf1 g6 9.f4 Bg7 10.Nf3 0-0 11.Be3 e6 12.dxe6 fxe6 13.Ng5 Qe7 14.Qb3 d5 15.exd5 exd5 16.Nxd5 Qa7 17.Nxf6+ Kh8 18.Nfe4 Rxf4+ 19.Bxf4 c4 1-0

*I got the comment never give a pawn against a much higher rated opponent.
*Yeah, whatever!

So AL, this gives me the edge 3-2

Never play in fear. They just longing for the thrill to be crushed by you.
