25. ...b6 26. Bf5!?

Since Hank was rooting for a trick or treat, I decided to play a trick. I will let you ponder it over the Halloween weekend and will give a response on Sunday.

24. ...c5 25. Qe3

Actually had to spend some time on this move, since most of the previous moves were fairly forced. Anyway, next move is coming on Thursday. Now off to work on a paper due tomorrow and a test to be taken tomorrow.

23. ...g6 24. Rae1

Heel still is hurting pretty bad, but not as much as before. Hopefully I will be back to badminton playing shape by next week. Anyway, this game is more or less playing itself from the white side, which is probably not what black wants to have happen. I will see you all again Monday with move 25.

22. ...Qf6 23. Qd3

Just going to go ahead and be nice and subtle with my threats :-p Anyway, tonight I am joining the University Badminton Club and completely forsaking the Chess Club. I also won in round 1 of the collegiate tournament currently being held on ICC, current standings are here. I am taking a bye in round 2 to play OTB in Ames this weekend. Also, I have a lot of free time on my hands now since I finished my MWF classes, so if anyone wants me to post anything chess related up, I have all the time in the world to prepare it. Next move is set to arrive on Friday.

**Edit: Wednesday Morning** So, after 15 minutes of playing at the Badminton Club, I seriously jacked up my heel and had to stop playing. It still hurts pretty bad, so I am just hoping I didn't do something serious to it. After that I stopped by the chess club and went 4.0/4.0 then went home.

21. ...Bxe5 22. Rxe5

Next move on Tuesday.

20. ...Qg5 21. g3

I decided to avoid the Bishops of opposite color resulting after Qxf3 Bxe5 when I am not sure my pawn will be enough. So I will just see what comes of this.

I passed my Tae Kwon Do final, so I am now the equivalent of a Yellow Belt. Woo! Today is also the last day of my Badminton class doubles tournament. I am currently in the lead at 11-1 in the tournament, hopefully I will be able to avoid losses today to come out #1.

Next move will be coming on Saturday, by which point I will be 22 (Birthday on Thursday :-))

19. ...Qh5 20. Be5

So you wanted to threaten a mate, huh? That's how it is going to be, eh? I'm going to have none of that! Also, don't question why I am up at 6am to post my move. Now on to unrelated business. So far 8-1 in the Doubles Tournament my class is having where you must switch partners every game. That is in the lead by 1 win over the next closest player. Monday I will pass my Tae Kwon Do final and be a yellow belt. Lastly, I recently got some tickets to the Iowa-Indiana game, hopefully Iowa will still be undefeated at that point. That about sums everything up.

P.S. I am toying with the idea of embedding some video posts in the near future so that my webcam and video editing skills (or lack thereof) will get some occasional use. Opinions?

18. ...Bxf3 19. Bxf6

So we are finally getting some more interesting voting going on, this time 2-1. I am going to be pretty brief today, since I still need to eat my first meal of the day, and it is 6 pm. Next move coming on Sunday.

17, ...Bg4 18. Bg5

So I think I'll just hold on to that pawn and assume nothing bad will happen. Anyway, next move is coming at you on Thursday.

16. ...Qc5 17. Bxh6. And so it begins.

Down goes the h6 pawn. I decided to go ahead and spice the game up a bit after ...Qc5's 2-1 victory. I think Jason's ideas were more or less right if I played the position slowly, but this just looks so much more enticing. I am really looking forward to the debate on this move (particularly what all of the world leaders' insights are), which will produce a response from me on Monday.
