I played Teah, my most frequent first-round opponent. I decided not to play King’s Gambit, nor Scotch. I wanted to settle my nerves and get into the game slowly, so played Ruy Lopez, but then she played a …Bc5 variation – remember, I’ve only ever seen her play a Portuguese Scandinavian before – and fell into an opening blunder/trap.
At the end of the game, I had an hour and six minutes remaining to her 46 minutes. Apparently, she resigned at the right time because after she moves her bishop, I can play Bc2 and she will have to sac her rook on f5 for nothing to stop mate.
