Campeón


Faro Perella - Horton, individual championship of Huesca province 2010, round nine, board one. Position after 27...Qc5-c3.

White played 28.Qh4?? and, after 28...Qxa1+, resigned, thus making Black the champion of Huesca province.

I could not be more proud.

It doesn't look like as much of a car crash as Rudd-Zhou, Liverpool 2008 (the game that got me the IM title).

It's only a car crash at the end, to be honest: I'm winning by the time the rook falls off (and for honest, a few moves beforehand, though it was only when I played ...Qc3 that I was sure I was winning).

Congratulations!

(21.b3 a mistake? 21.a3 instead maybe?)
