My best chess games, by Paco Vela.

   I've abandoned my chess website for a while, but that's about to change in a few weeks/months.
   
   I've been working on posting my best games. At first, I wanted to make it about my best 10 games, or 12, or even 16, but man! This is difficult!
I have a total of 808 in my database.



    I trimmed them down from 68 to 58. Then, from 58 to 45, from there down to 38, and now to 27. And the more I look through every game, the more and more difficult it is to say: "Nope, this one doesn't belong to one of my best". It may be pride, selfishness, or both.Either way, it's not easy.
   I think I will end up doing my best 20 chess games, because after all of this, I think I might be able to cut off at least 7 more games but no more.

Coming up soon...

Chess match 2015, game 4



    Last night we played the fourth game of our Match and after sacrificing the b2 pawn, white attacked the black king with everything but the kitchen sink. 
   Actually, at one point Jose had a draw by repetition by sacrificing a whole rook. I saw it and thought he would go for it, but under great time pressure he missed it, and after wrongly sacrificing his knight, black only had to find place for his king and then advance the a pawn, until white really had nothing else to do, but give up.
   The score is 3 to 1 in my favor, but with 8 more games to go, it's a nice advantage, but nothing decisive yet.
   I have white in the next one, game 5, but after that Jose will have 2 whites in a row, interesting...

The fight never ends.
        OK, here is the game with some light comments:

Chess Match 2015, Game 2

      In a very interesting French defense, advance variation, I was able to play well and win the game, and now the score stands equal at 1-1.



This is the game:
