I had a ball couple nights ago going at my first try in bughouse! But afterwards something happened. The next night and day my head tried to work out the experience and at the same time I seem to have lost some thread of thought in my basic chess. I hit one of the worst loosing streaks and I kept loosing both in ICC and FICS untill the last game I had this morning before I run for work.
Naturally my opponent was totally winning, but erred and played Nxa1?? unaware what will hit him.
White to play:
To tell some background I summoned up my good ol' CT-Art 3.0 and Peshk the other day and out of curiosity bought the Elementary checkmates for beginner and have quite regularly trained on the mates so it seems it has become easier for me to find mates.
Do you see the continuation? I'm sure my opponent didn't.
That turned the tides somewhat and also gives more motivation working on my tactics and mates.
