Dennis M's Chess Site

This is a blog for chess fans by a chess fan. I enjoy winning as much as anyone else, and I've had a reasonable amount of success as a competitor, but what keeps me coming back to the game is its beauty. And that, primarily, is what this site will be about! All material copyrighted.

DM vs. Goliath in Blitz

I haven't played much blitz lately, so I "splurged" tonight and tried a single game against an anonymous GM on the server. Here's the game:

NN (2688) - DM (2580) [D00]

Rated game, 3m + 0s Main Playing Hall, 05.02.2005

1.d4 d5 2.Bg5 h6 3.Bh4 c6 4.Nf3 Qb6 5.b3 Bf5 6.e3 Nd7 7.Be2 Ngf6 8.0–0 e6 9.Nbd2 Ba3 10.Bd3 0–0 11.Bxf5 exf5 12.c4 Ne4 13.Qc2 Rac8 14.c5 Qb5 15.Nb1 Qa5 16.Nxa3 Qxa3 17.Nd2 Rfe8 18.Rfc1 b6 19.Nxe4 fxe4 20.Bg3 bxc5 21.dxc5 Ne5 22.Bxe5 Rxe5 23.Qc3 f6 24.Qd4 Rb8 25.Rd1 Qb4 26.Qxb4 Rxb4 27.Kf1 a5 28.Ke2 Re7 29.Kd2 Reb7 30.Kc3 Kf7 31.Rd4 Ke6 32.Rc1 Ke5 33.f4+ exf3 34.gxf3 R7b5 35.f4+ Kf5 36.Kd3 a4 37.bxa4 Rxd4+ 38.exd4 Rb4 39.Rf1 Rxa4 40.Rf2 Ra3+ 41.Kc2 Rxa2+ Time 0–1

[N.B. Some of you may have seen the game posted earlier with diagrams. When I looked at the page with Mozilla, it looked great, but in IE it was horribly distorted. So I'm still trying to figure out how to make it all work, and comments from those who know would be appreciated!]

    I use chessbase to create jpg diagrams and it works great. If you don't have chessbase, there are a few utility programs out there that will do the same thing. WinBoard and chesspad are two that come immediately to mind.

    Hi Rakshasas,

    Thanks for the comment! My difficulty isn't in making diagrams, which I can do easily enough with ChessBase, but in uploading it to the blog. The only way I'm aware of to do that, at this point, is to create a web page, upload the diagram there, and then enter special html coding that reads the image from the other site and posts it into the blog.

    I'll do that if I have to, but it would sure be nice if there were a way to simply cut-and-paste something straight from my computer, without creating a new site or goofing around with html. I thought I was able to do that by outputting from ChessBase to an .rtf file and then pasting the rtf into the Create a Post window. It worked perfectly within Mozilla's Firefox, but I couldn't do the same in IE, and attempting to view it in IE was a failure as well.

    So that's the problem: solutions?
