Don't Surround Yourself With Yourself

Posted by Paul Anderson on March 1, 2010 at 7:45 PM

Game Of The Week


This week's game comes from the club event.  I wasn't playing too well and only had one decent game.  However, I still managed 2.5 points.  Part of the reason was that it was a fast time control (G15), and Dean Brown was trying to keep score. 


Here I misplayed the opening and gave Dean a huge advantage, but I figured I would "make the white queen run so fast, she hasn't got time to make you wise."  Once I got the white queen traded for the black rooks, I knew my time advantage would allow my queen to "move me on to any black square" for the killer move.  If I had to give Dean some advice about this game, it would be to have the rook "move on back two squares."
