I played in the first scheduled match of FICS Teamleague T33 last night, I won against Crem. There were lots of observers for my game seeing as it was the first one, and later I could read all the comments left during the game. I think I did reasonably well.

Rxc2 {[%emt 0:01:51]} 16.Rxc2 {[%emt 0:00:54]
Malfurion(1797) whispers: gotta start tryin to work some miracles with that bishop..}
Nxc2 {[%emt 0:00:13]
fernbap(1720) whispers: convert it to a queen?
Malfurion(1797) whispers: though 2 knights usually work better than a knight and bishop
Malfurion(1797) whispers: play Rb1 and pray that black brainfarts w/something like Na3}

screamdlg(1498) whispers: )
HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: Creating: HyperMagnus (2070) AlekBlu (2088) rated standard 15 10 Your opponent has aborted the game on move one.

HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: I just rule. Entirely}
18.Bc6+ {[%emt 0:01:16]

Ke7 {[%emt 0:01:39]} 19.Ne4 {[%emt 0:00:05]
HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: I don't like my handle.
CamyC(2215) whispers: :)
Malfurion(1797) whispers: crem needs to keep his pieces on the board..
CamyC(2215) whispers: pawns too :P
rustic(2043) whispers: this might lose the bishop
Malfurion(1797) whispers: that's a dubious move at best
Malfurion(1797) whispers: hoping for Nxe4 Rd7+ Kf8?
CamyC(2215) whispers: he probably doesnt see f6 gets vacant :)}
Nxe4 {[%emt 0:02:13]
Malfurion(1797) whispers: might as well try it at this point
CamyC(2215) whispers: yup, i think Ne4 was a good try
Malfurion(1797) whispers: he can at least get a pawn back..
screamdlg(1498) whispers: hm ... ))
HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: Rd7
HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: last try
screamdlg(1498) whispers: good try
CamyC(2215) whispers: well, its not anywhere near close to an automatic win on this level}

derMandarin(1961) whispers: the first league game is always hard
Malfurion(1797) whispers: a3 might be able to win the knight
fernbap(1720) whispers: what is he waiting to play a3?
CamyC(2215) whispers: how do you hope to win the knight?
proudpawn(1730) whispers: a3 Nd5
CamyC(2215) whispers: a3 Nd5 is probably simplest, or a3 Ke5 or a3 Na2 maybe
rustic(2043) whispers: knight and a pawn for the bish
proudpawn(1730) whispers: i would never give up my bishop for that
Malfurion(1797) whispers: i don't think he'll play Nd5...
Malfurion(1797) whispers: i'm banking on Na2:)
proudpawn(1730) whispers: what about Rxc7 Nxa2 Bb2
CamyC(2215) whispers: ok, Ke5 is stupid
CamyC(2215) whispers: just a3 Nd5
proudpawn(1730) whispers: then Nb4 Rb7
Malfurion(1797) whispers: B can't go to b2..
proudpawn(1730) whispers: Bb1 of course
Malfurion(1797) whispers: then N back to b4}
22.a3 {[%emt 0:06:02]} Ke5 {[%emt 0:02:41]
proudpawn(1730) whispers: hm
HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: did someone clal my name?
proudpawn(1730) whispers: lol
proudpawn(1730) whispers: axb3 Kxe4 Rxf7 and another pawn to follow
CamyC(2215) whispers: i think Rxf7 is more accurate :P
HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: I'd keep the bishop
proudpawn(1730) whispers: black's king is much better then, though}
23.Rxc7 {[%emt 0:02:49]
proudpawn(1730) whispers: Bb7!
CamyC(2215) whispers: Rf7 Ke4 ab gives white some drawing chances i think
CamyC(2215) whispers: 23.Rf7 i meant
derMandarin(1961) whispers: CREM CREM CREM
proudpawn(1730) whispers: go crem!!
derMandarin(1961) whispers: time to start your engines crem :D
derMandarin(1961) whispers: afterburner}
Kxe4 {[%emt 0:02:26]} 24.axb4 {[%emt 0:00:03]
derMandarin(1961) whispers: and do not trade rooks, boy}
Rb8 {[%emt 0:01:13]
derMandarin(1961) whispers: Rxc7!
HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: Rook takes itself? :)
derMandarin(1961) whispers: ok this is rather tricky
CamyC(2215) whispers: i still sthink Rxf7 was more accurate}
25.Ra7 {[%emt 0:00:37]
CamyC(2215) whispers: think*
derMandarin(1961) whispers: oops, sorry I stop commenting now. too much beer
proudpawn(1730) whispers: not again, derMandarin!
proudpawn(1730) whispers: ;)
CamyC(2215) whispers: and now too :P
proudpawn(1730) whispers: come on, crem, eat all those pawns
CamyC(2215) whispers: now Rb4 Ra6 and Kf5 or something with an easy win
derMandarin(1961) whispers: still crem does a good job here. I have seen people going down with less fight.}
Rxb4 {[%emt 0:01:11]
derMandarin(1961) whispers: he just should stark taking thinking time a bit earlier in future games ;)
proudpawn(1730) whispers: put a rook on g4
CamyC(2215) whispers: or Rxf7 Ke3+Rg4
CamyC(2215) whispers: or if Ke3 h3, then Rb1 Kh2 e5 should easily win too
proudpawn(1730) whispers: hm, according to rybka this looks like a possible draw
CamyC(2215) whispers: in which variation?}
26.Rxf7 {[%emt 0:02:50]
proudpawn(1730) whispers: this
HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: lol, that was a waste of tempo
rustic(2043) whispers: well rybka will have to play instead of crem
CamyC(2215) whispers: i think blacks clearly better
CamyC(2215) whispers: but im not a computer :P
CamyC(2215) whispers: nor a fish
seberg(1706) whispers: dubious assement
proudpawn(1730) whispers: her idea is Rxg7 and Rg3
CamyC(2215) whispers: what after Ke3 here?}
Ke3 {[%emt 0:01:55]
seberg(1706) whispers: haha}
27.h3 {[%emt 0:00:35]
CamyC(2215) whispers: does Rybka see that after 5 checks i hide on a4, put the rook on e7 and promote the a-pawn?
proudpawn(1730) whispers: don't know, you might try it}
a5 {[%emt 0:01:15]
CamyC(2215) whispers: well, i analysed a bit with rybka, and ive seen it making stupid evaluations in the past, so im just asking
screamdlg(1498) whispers: eat! eat! eat!
proudpawn(1730) whispers: version 2.3.2 is MUCH better in endgames than earlier version, but of course certaiin endgames are still miracles for computers
gile(1732) whispers: wow... so many observers ... :)
CamyC(2215) whispers: i havent seen 2.3.2, but computers have trouble in general with this type of endgames
gile(1732) whispers: hi all}
28.Rf3+ {[%emt 0:02:26]
proudpawn(1730) whispers: hi gile
CamyC(2215) whispers: maybe not so much with playing them, as with evaluating them
CamyC(2215) whispers: hey gile}
Ke4 {[%emt 0:01:44]
CamyC(2215) whispers: Rg3 o_O
proudpawn(1730) whispers: Rg3 hoping g6}
29.Kf2 {[%emt 0:00:36]
CamyC(2215) whispers: wouldnt hurt to try :P
HyperMagnus(2070) whispers: WEll Rg3 g6
proudpawn(1730) whispers: yes, loses anyway
proudpawn(1730) whispers: Rxb4 axb4}
a4 {[%emt 0:01:40]} 30.Ra3 {[%emt 0:00:14]
CamyC(2215) whispers: well, everything loses, but hoping for weakening moves like g6 is the only chance
CamyC(2215) whispers: now Rg3 could be strong though
CamyC(2215) whispers: winning the pawn i think}
e5 {[%emt 0:01:56]
CamyC(2215) whispers: Rg3 again
proudpawn(1730) whispers: yes, now it would be even winning
CamyC(2215) whispers: winning for whom?}
31.Ke1 {[%emt 0:01:20]
PankracyRozumek(1682) whispers: for Black :-)
proudpawn(1730) whispers: white
CamyC(2215) whispers: Rg3 only gives practical chances to save the game
screamdlg(1498) whispers: omg
proudpawn(1730) whispers: Rg3 g6 wins rook on b4 and the a-pawn
CamyC(2215) whispers: proudpawn, but Rg3 Ra2 doesnt win the rook and the a-pawn
CamyC(2215) whispers: Rb2*
PankracyRozumek(1682) whispers: Rg3 Rb2+ and what next?
CamyC(2215) whispers: just because you make a threat, doesnt mean the opponent wont react
proudpawn(1730) whispers: we were talking about hopes ;-)}
Kd4 {[%emt 0:01:19]
CamyC(2215) whispers: well, Rg3 won the pawn, thats the realistic hope
CamyC(2215) whispers: now white is dead
CamyC(2215) whispers: ok, now white is _clearly_ dead :P
proudpawn(1730) whispers: ok, make the pawns runs and prepare for stalemate!
proudpawn(1730) whispers: monkeys fight!
CamyC(2215) whispers: well, its hard to imagine how can black screw this position up}
32.Kd1 {[%emt 0:01:49]
screamdlg(1498) whispers: Kd2 ?
screamdlg(1498) whispers: no, d1
CamyC(2215) whispers: i play ...e4 anyway
derMandarin(1961) whispers: yay Mario Kart Wii anounced :)}
Kc4 {[%emt 0:01:28]
CamyC(2215) whispers: i dont understand where is he going with that king but ok...}
33.Kd2 {[%emt 0:00:44]
CamyC(2215) whispers: ive read about king centralisation in the endgame, but i dont understand modern chess :)}
Kb5 {[%emt 0:01:13]
CamyC(2215) whispers: maybe Re3 e4 Rg3?
proudpawn(1730) whispers: looks like black goes for Rb3 Rxb3 axb3...
screamdlg(1498) whispers: Kc3 i think
CamyC(2215) whispers: Kc3 Rb3-+
screamdlg(1498) whispers: i just try to guess his move
CamyC(2215) whispers: i just try to guess the answer to that move :)}
34.Kc3 {[%emt 0:02:46]
screamdlg(1498) whispers: ee
CamyC(2215) whispers: you guessed right :)
CamyC(2215) whispers: i prefered Kc2 or Re3}

Rb3 {[%emt 0:00:45]
CamyC(2215) whispers: haha, quite possible
CamyC(2215) whispers: yeah, even ...e3 won
Malfurion(1797) whispers: oh well..good try crem- got those first game nerves behind ya now:)
derMandarin(1961) whispers: yes he started playing good after he lost this second pawn ;)}
