Hi Graham,

I'll go with this one... just finished.

What is funny is that I pushed the "resign" button after Kf2 before changing my mind, just to see the end... then win (luckily, probably)

It's always satisfying to win quickly. :)

Bad game but last part of game has a nice combination. I found it because I read it from face of strong player (Elo 2100-2200) watching the game.
For I thought my position was hopeless. But if a strong player finds it interesting then probably there would be something interesting.
Otherwise I probably would have spent less time and not found the winning combination.

So I don't understand why other players are allowed to watch a game. For they usually don't have a perfect poker face. And even if they have a poker face the time they stay watching the game already gives information.

This is why in-person tournaments are so much more enjoyable. The human factors are endlessly fascinating (IMO) which adds so much to the enjoyment of the game, just as your example testifies. You can learn as much or more about people and human nature as you can about chess.
