Round 4, City Championship

Round 4

I was going to take a bye, until I found it that it would have only been a zero point bye, so I went to play and was glad I did, as I was feeling better than expected, after getting over a respiratory infection.

  1. Well played, ferocious attack!
    He gave up the initiative after the opening, which was quite passive too.
    A few times there was a possibility of finishing sooner, for example 20… f3 was winning, also 23… Rxe1+ was strong.
    Very good game!

  2. Yeah, I debated about 20…f3, and even gave a line for it after the game, getting a …Ng4. Of course, there are sacs, but didn’t want to play any in time-pressure.

    I never even considered 23….Rxe1+, so didn’t know it was strong, thanks for pointing that out!

    At some point, …e4 was stronger than …f4, but he never did anything to prevent it, and I sensed it was going in that direction.

    Thank you! 🙂
