ICC Blitz #8-#11

This post is for games 8, 9, 10, and 11 in the series looking at 11 of my recent ICC blitz games. All 11 games with light Fritz analysis are: here. These four are the top four in the list on that page.

Two whites, two blacks, 3 wins, 1 loss. 2 Pircs as black (the loss was a Pirc as black), 1 Smith Morra and 1 Danish Gambit.

A couple of interesting positions from these last four games:

Black to move and win.

White to move and win.

Summary and Conclusions
Of the 11 games I won 8 and lost 3. There were 5 games as White, 3 Smith Morras and 2 Danish Gambit. I lost 1 Smith Morra as white. As Black, I played 1 Moron and 5 Pircs. I lost 2 of the Pircs.

None of the losses were due to my opening play. In fact, in none of the games did I have a bad position from the opening. In a couple games I was winning from the opening.

What I see as the single biggest flaw and what I need to work on is missing very simple tactics (mate in 1, piece en prise, etc).
