An other mighty weapon against the Fried Liver is the Traxler counter attack. 

I'm ashamed to say that many a time I bit the dust against this defense. 

But I think I'm now getting the hang of it.  This one who tried the Traxler against me bit the dust in 11 moves.

Unfortunately, yesterday I again went down against a Traxler counter gambit as answer to my Fried Liver Attack.  
It was one in a long range of losses, and I think that if I was a little bit more focused, and would have played a little bit less blunderfull, I should have won it.

Anyway, just now I was faced with another Traxler counter attack, and in 30 moves I won it:  https://lichess.org/D8N1iqpWrrhW

HALLELUJAH!!

It is not exactly a miniature, but I'm happy with the win, the Traxler is a mean beast, and I'm happy I came out on top.

A 1842 resigned against me on move 13 while he was a pawn ahead:  https://lichess.org/VklT9X6pEGzZ
I gave him the pawn on move 8, because I saw it would give him a totally isolated double pawn close to his king, on the E line, and that would be a lovely thing for me to start attacking, and so put pressure on him.  Plus it messed up the position of his castled king. 
And then he resigns.   While a pawn ahead, just with a rotten position.

What happened to fighting spirit?

And 1898 resigned on move 7 with an Englund gambit:  https://lichess.org/lexDIPWR708o

Really I think guys with a rating like that are too good for me, and I shouldn't play them.  But the point is, 2000 is like a psychological barrier.  I seen it again and again, as long as I am below 2000, even 1998 or something, I find opponents very quickly, even though I set my search settings on a maximum of 1850. 
But once I'm 2000 or up, I'm waiting ages for an opponent of 1850 or lower.  So I was forced to set my search settings to a max of 1900.  Which means that I'm usually only a 100 points or so higher than the opponent, which I think is too close for comfort.  
What can I do; I hate losing.

A few days ago I used the Lichess button on the right which says:  "new opponent".  I shouldn't use that button, because usually he makes a search with the exact same search settings as before, but sometimes he gives the same time settings, but no rating settings.  And so it happens that when I got a new opponent, and I started the game, that I saw that I, then rated 1970, was playing a 2009.   And that is really not what I want.  
Thank God I won the game, but still.  Chess is supposed to fun and relaxing, not a stressful endeavour.  https://lichess.org/lexDIPWR708o

Anyway, the Englund gambit, which by now I played many hundreds of times, came through for me, again, like hundreds of times before, and the opponent didn't make it past move 7. 

That's the way I like it.

Ain't that the truth.

Except of course, when the opponent fals victim to an opening trap.  :))

I once had 2 rooks forked by a bishop in a club speed tournament and
resigned on the spot. The TD said 'why did you resign? Now I can't
restore the position because you ended the game when you resigned'
(which 30 years later and having become an international arbiter in
the meantime know isn't true - but given the venue it's not something
you would send to the National Appeals Committee)

The point is the bishop made an illegal move by jumping over an
intervening pawn. I think the guy was innocent but who really knows?

Happens to the best of us.  A few days ago I resigned in a winning situation.   Don't have the game at hand, I would have to search for it, but right after I clicked the resign button I saw the winning line.  Happens.

No big deal.  No reason to get upset.  So after the red haze in front of my eyes started to diminish a bit, I wiped the foam of my mouth, and started a new game as if nothing happened.

Things like that are best forgotten.

I looked at this page here:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blunder_(chess) and that has a soothing effect.  I mean; if even grandmasters can blunder horribly, then I am excused.   It has also some games in which GM's resign in a winning position.  Happens to the best of us. 

This section is very entertaining:  "Resignation in won positions
Sometimes players, including strong grandmasters, resign a position which they are actually winning, not losing. Chess historian Tim Krabbé calls this kind of mistake "the ultimate blunder".[23]"

I remember Carlsen, I think when he was already world champion, blundering away a horse for no reason.  Also in the match with Anand he made at least one enormous losing blunder, but Anand didn't see it.  :)

So we shouldn't take our blunders to seriously.

Did you already work as an arbiter in some international events?

Got some Stafford gambits:   https://lichess.org/oxgYmhY4P5le In this one after taking the pawn and horse, he pushed his pawn to e5 to attack my horse.  I put my horse on e4, and hoped for d3.  It became d4, so my queen went to h4 to have a double attack on f2, after which I hoped for g3, and lo and behold, I got it!

So my horse smacked in on g3, he took my horse with his f pawn, after which my queen went to e4+, and next move I relieved him of his castle on h1. 
After that he made one more move, but resigned right after it, on move 10.

I'm using at the moment an old nick I had laying around, wasn't used since 2016, because it is too stressful trying to keep that 2000+ nick in the air..  I played some relaxing chess with my brain on zero, but unfortunately, the results were what you expect when playing like that.
Still now my rating is slowly creeping up, I'm now just over 1900. 

Two games before the above game I had another Stafford gambit:  https://lichess.org/8AcU9va2Jr0d I got the triple attack on f2, the opponent blundered, and I mated him om move 10.

In this Englund gambit the opponent suddenly resigned on move 7:  https://lichess.org/dT4v5KSsCa6j

Don't know why he did that, but I happily accepted his resignation.  :)

If you just try it often enough, sooner or later somebody is going to fall for the Fishing Pole trap:  https://lichess.org/LfblOQRnfKPI

A 10 move miniature thanks to the Fishing Pole.

And just now I had another Stafford gambit:  https://lichess.org/VnVpOIcIIzxc

Unfortunately, on move 7 I lost my king, but on move 8 I caught his king.

Here an Englund gambit in which the opponent was trying to fork me:  https://lichess.org/NjWGujqCWnkc

That went horribly wrong for him.  :)

A chess player regularly encounters the kings gambit.  So did I just now:  https://lichess.org/HGCER2ahf8gp

I always like to answer it with Falkbeer's countergambit.  And it just happens to be so that there is a horrible way in which the opponent can go wrong with it.   And that is what just happened.  The opponent grabbed the wrong pawn, the poisoned one, and he resigned on move 7.  

I really LOVE those miniatures!

HalleluJah!!

And just now I had another Stafford gambit:  https://lichess.org/jkY7Q24updFk

Unfortunately, on move 7 I lost my queen, but on move 8 I mated his king.

And here an opponent who, when confronted with the Englund gambit, decided to resign on move 4:  https://lichess.org/YJbhS4YNYVtp

He was rated 1846, so not exactly a raw beginner.

So here https://lichess.org/9gBGvMUiUKGs the opponent tried the Fried Liver on me.

I was kind enough to let him fork my queen and castle, but then, after he had taken my castle, I mated him with a smothered mate on move 10.

So this morning when I started my computer and went to Lichess and started a game, the parameters for the game were all messed up. Normally it remembers all my preferences, but not this morning.  It was set to some blitz timing in stead of the 15/15 I always play.   I'm a horrible blitz player, because my brain doesn't work fast enough for blitz.   I need serious time to think before I make my blunderfull moves.

Anyway, I set the time settings to 15/15, but I forgot to notice that the search settings for the rating of the desired opponents were also messed up.   So that's the reason that now, in the early morning, me with a rating of 1967 (I'm slowly creeping upward) was playing a 1951:  https://lichess.org/qzaKoXxicYJw

Thank God the guy was kind enough to start with d4, after which I could apply my beloved Englund gambit, and I mated him on move 8.  

It is weird, I never met that Englund guy, but I really like him.  Isn't that strange?

Somehow I feel I'm indebted to him.   He made my chess world a better place..
