I love Chess

I haven't played much chess in a while, but I was kicked off the system here at work by the automated night jobs and needed something to pass the time, so I played a game. I'm pretty good at chess, but I'm not spectacular or anything. So anyway I joined the first open game, which was against a player rated about 1475. I still had a provisional ranking because I had not played 20 games on Yahoo yet, but my unofficial ranking was just over 1300 (I was 11-1).

The game was amazing. He was very aggressive as white, setting up a strong wall with his pawns. He was up for nearly the entire game, both in piece count and in position on the board. However, with VERY careful play, some deception and misdirection, I was able to pull a fast one on him :) He quit before the game was finished properly (no honor) but I was the clear victor. The transcript is in the lj-cut below, in case some of you might be interested in playing it out and maybe making any suggestions.

I'd love to play chess with any one of you. Just reply here or IM me and we'll set up a game.
