Game Of The Year XIV

End Of The Season

Wednesday, September 13, 2017


Well, another chess season has come to a close for me.  It is time for me to move on to managing the website for my other hobby (http://spamfootball.webs.com/), but I will return after the football season ends.  Before I go, I wanted to clean up some loose ends.


Of course, you can still send in news items or articles during the off-season, and I will email them along to the subscribers.  Any games I receive will be stored at the Colorado Springs Chess News’ Yahoo! group (https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/cs_chess/info).  You can also join the group to keep receiving chess games all year round.


So, before I finish typing my chess thoughts for another year, I want to thank all the people who sent in games and articles, all the people who took the time to tell me something nice about the newsletter, and all the people who take the time to read this.


Game Of The Year


Usually at this time, I look over the past year's statistics to see if it was a good or bad year for me.  Looking over the statistics helps me get past the bad feelings that linger from my losses.  They bring me back into balance and force me to look at what I did right and what I did wrong.  While 2016 was an off year and 2017 isn't looking much better, I still have time to improve 2017.  Here is how it is going so far:


2048 peak USCF rating (record: 2015 - 2102)

2067 peak BLITZ rating (record: 2017 - 2067)

2054 peak CLUB rating (record: 2013 - 2127)

75.81% USCF winning percentage (record: 2012 - 79.31%)

78.95% CLUB winning percentage (record: 2013 - 87.86%)

12 projected prizes won (record: 2014 - 20)

35 projected USCF-rated wins (record: 2013 - 75.5)

1 upset (record: 2001 - 6)

Total: 15 positive years and 4 negative years


So, as far as my favorite game of the year goes, the obvious choice would be the one upset I had this year.  I was able to get a win from NM Josh Bloomer during the "Year of Josh." 


Josh had been playing less and less chess recently.  In fact, for 5 straight years he played less than 20 games.  Finally, several of Colorado's masters got together for a bet to see which 2200 could pass 2300 first.  This goal seemed to reinvigorate Josh's game.


At the beginning of this year, Josh was getting close to winning the bet.  He was at 2294 and only six points away from the top of the mountain.  However, that is when I got my upset.  He is the highest rated player I have beaten.  It was a setback for Josh but only temporarily.


In the past year, Josh has not only passed the 2300 barrier but also only lost this game and one more to fellow NM, Chris Peterson, in the process.  Chris was one of the masters in 2300 bet and took Josh out for his steak dinner.  But the real thanks goes to LM Brian Wall, who served up the steak dinner on a silver platter.
