i played the same guy at the club about 8 times and beat him all 8 times. i played the dragon as black, the bird lopez, the tchigorin proper and a caro exchange. as white i got a crazy nimzo (1.Nf3 Nf6 2.d4 e6 3.c4 Nc6 4.Nc3 Bb4), bird lopez (he copied me), and cozio lopez. kirk inspired me to try 1.e4 e5 tonight by his terrible usage of the tchigorin lopez on ICC today. shah advised me that if i have to play blitz, i should play with at least a 2 second increment, so there are no wins on time.
