First day in the heaven

Today is the first day, when I improved my rating. Good feeling :) I was  very busy today. I only solved 3 (35-37) puzzles from the 1001 combinations book in 5 minutes. Then played 3 games in 18 minutes.

In the 1st game, I played against a strong player and the game was fairly balanced, we got only 2 kings left at the end.

In the 2nd game I played again against the queen pawn opening and this time I played better and got a fine position, but when I was a pawn up I blundered a checkmate.

Then in the 3rd game I won against the sicilian dragon in a long game. This is my 2nd victory against the dragon from 2 games. Do I have the support of Saint Michael? :)
