  1. Quite apart from the opening, what an entertaining game! When you said about his friend making the bet with you, I thought then "he's told him that he will play the Cow"! Could you have played Kb8 first and delayed the sacrifice by one move so that the tactics work? Does he have a strong move that consolidates first? I guess Nxe6 and Nf3 are the problem. Shows how hard it is to ensure that every line works after sacrificing lots of material. Anyway your tactics seemed right; lead the Heffalump into the swamp (Simon Webb) and hope he sinks first, rather than being gradually crushed!

  2. Yeah, you should not let the demeanor or your opponent affect your play. It is just waste. Love the content thou! Best of luck with the tournament!

  3. wow! congratulations for having to courage to trust your intuition! it didnt work but thats another issue! keep it up!

  4. I am glad he won, I think he just had the better opening. Cow ftw.
