    I think when we play with real board and pieces mistakes happen far less. Somehow online play makes the rate of mistakes high. I have noted this happens with many players.

    Am I the only one who thinks the resignation was premature? Losing your queen early sucks, but the situation was by no means untenable. He could have taken a rook in reply, and still had all his other peices. Maybe I don't understand the blitz rules. I don't even like playing timed games...

    I had to look into this. Take the white bishop. The queen takes our queen. Now Nc6xe5. We take the white night on c2 attacking the pawn on b2. The 2 rooks are to strong and the queen, while immobilized manages to defend the 2 pawns. (I was looking to march the pawns forwards)

    I was looking for a mate, or a mate in 2 or even 3. A queen trap does not a win make. Black shouldn't have resigned. He could have at least gotten a rook out of this mess. If I resigned every time I blundered I'd lose every game I play.

    I have a suggestion for online live chess games - just as they do during soccer on TV - with cheering and yelling traks and even computer generated people on empty stands - they should add cough and squeaky chairs tracks, like laugh tracks in boring sitcoms. Players don't have to hear it if they don't like it, but the audience in front of their laptops would enjoy, I'm sure of it. On the topic: I have always been dismissing Shirov on the basis of his hair style (like Serbian turbo folk star from 1980's) and Ivantchuk on the basis of his never washed jogging suit and cheap wrist watch from 1970's. Not that style can always help, thpugh, for example Agadmator has postpunk hair style but I could beat him in 20 moves with my left hand. If I only don't look at that ominous lama toy of course. And smiling pillow is like Dr. Zukhar with his mind waves... Spooky.
