Knight (J'adoube) vs ex-Knight (me) Challenge 0,5-0,5

Another Knight challenge has come to an end. This time my challenger was none other then graduate Knight 'J'adoube' playing as 'jbedenbaugh'. The games were played over at Net-Chess. A perfect match as the outcome of the games would suggest. I really enjoyed the games J√°doube! Let me know if you ever want to have another go at it.

Grandmaster vs Amateur (update)

Remember my turn-based games vs the Iranian (residing in France) Grandmaster Amir Bagheri i previously posted about? Well, they have come to an end. After the Grandmaster put the games on hold, he decided not to return at all, thus forfeiting the games. Technically you could say i've won both games (with the emphasis on "technically"), but i rather consider the games to have no outcome. Too bad, as i felt i had an interesting game going as White. The following diagram is the final position of me playing as White.


Less interesting was my game as Black, as i felt the position was starting to look pretty bad. Take a look at the diagram.


You can replay the games (with some annotation) to their final positions here. Anyway, all is not lost. I still got a game going with women's Grandmaster Yelena Dembo over at GameKnot :-)
