I Am a Big Champion

Elizabeth - Woodenhead ICC 5 minute pool

What to do?

23.h5! Ne7 24.h6! g6 25.Qg5! f6 26.exf6 Nc6

27.Qxg6+!! I love myself. Notice that I had maybe 45 seconds on my clock. Of course, I didn't actually calculate it. 27...hxg6 28.h7+ Kf7 [oops!! ==> 28...Kh8! = 29.Nh4 (29.f7+? d4) 29...Kxh7 30.Nf5+

(don't be worried, this is just an analysis diagram!)

Kg8 31.Nh6+ Kh7 32.Nf5+ Kg8 what a cute draw. Like a swing.]

29.Ng5+ Ke8 30.h8Q Rxh8 31.Rxh8+ Kd7

32.Rh7+ Kd8 [32...Ke8 33.Nxe6] 33.Nxe6+ Ke8 34.f7+ Kd7

35.f8Q+ Ne7 36.Qxe7+ Kc6 37. Nd4+? [ok, whatever 37.Qd7#] 37...Nxd4 38.Bxd4 b5 [38...Kb5 39.Qe2+ Kc6 40.Qe6+ Kb5 41.Qb6#] 39.Qe6+ Qd6 40.Qxd6# 1-0

yay for me.

In the womens championship, if the tournament is drawn, they play blitz.

What happens in a blitz tournament that is drawn, do they play a slow game?
