Tournament of LEPers Rd 3: Dynamic Duo
Not Batman and Robin! I had my fill of Batman on Thursday. I still am feeling the affects of this miserable cold, but compared to Thursday I'm the picture of health. That's not saying a whole lot since I felt like total bat poop that day. You know I'm feeling lousy when I willingly pass up my Thursday night cracktion fix at the Marshall Chess Club. I'm surprised the calvary isn't knocking down my door wondering where I've been the last two Thursdays. I guess I better show my face next week before they file a missing person's report.
Back to today's game. The painting above should give a hint of what pair I'm speaking of. The funny thing was I kept offering to trade off bishops and Wahrheit kept refusing my kind offers. This was one of those games that was a yawner for the most part. It wasn't until the queens were traded that things opened up for me. I don't think either of us had our A game going. He hung pawns several times and I didn't notice. I'm glad when I put my moves into Fritz it doesn't sit there and say "Yo butthead! Why didn't ya take the free pawn?"
If I keep this up, I may actually start to like playing chess online. I guess next week I get to try to scramble up some eggs. Would ya like hash browns and pork product with that?
