DMD / DMA : Dead Man's Attack :)

You know the DMD - Dead Man's Defense... but do you know the Dead Man's Attack ? :))

Dinesh opponents may know this "funny" situation, but this time I prefered to wait the next rating calculation... Sorry Dinesh, I hope you did not sacrifice your sleep this last month (sure not) ;) .. Quite strange anyway, I'm curious to understand.

Dead Man's Attack

Finally, it didn't work... After more than 40 days with less than 9 hours (then 4 hours) at his clock, Dinesh easily reached the time control at move 40 !

Do you ever sleep, Dinesh ? :)

Haha! Good point! I actually do sleep. In the game you refer to, I was actually lucky to make the time control. Nevertheless, I had earlier lost a few games due to sleep! as I sometimes missed moves by a mere few seconds to time control. Some of those games I had some good positions Anyway, the main thing here is I enjoy my games win, draw or lose.

Why do you allow yourself to get into such time trouble?

Have to cut down playing too many games, for sure. That's the only answer, methinks.

Imagine a DMA / DMD thematic tournament ...
