In Round 2, I played Fred with the White pieces, and he went for a Sicilian Defense, instead of his normal Pirc/Modern Defense.
I felt Bc4 would have been the real test, but played it bland, more in hope-chess fashion since he gave me a4 and then when I played Kh1 (I figured I should have just played Be3), he didn’t challenge me with ..d5.
If he had played ..0-0 instead of ..h6, even his sham-sac would have worked fine. I basically didn’t do anything with this game other then let the lucky win drop into my lap. 😉 I kinda figured since he doesn’t play Sicilian much that my lackluster play might be okay for one lucky win.
RollingPawns, you should post one of your games. We are all in this 1700’s morass together. 🙂
