Today’s a good day. I finally managed to beat the mighty Trevor Bauer, who is the top-rated player on my da Vinci Chess site. He’s by far the best player of the 200 or so in the “club”, and he has continually whomped me in our games. I’ve managed to come close to beating him before, but he would come up with something clever to force a draw.
Today I made a few clever moves and he saw his untenable position and resigned. Woo hoo!
(Of course, I shouldn’t be too cocky about it… he’ll probably smash me in our next game.)
