So I played a nice 10 minute game in Live today, and apart from being one of my better efforts in a fairly average session of blitz I thought it might illustrate that if at first your plan doesn't seem to work, find a way to make it happen!
A satisfying effort for me, solving a non-trivial problem succesfully and converting an advantage. The lesson really is: if you feel like there should be a way to achieve your aims, there normally is! So don't give up on trying to find the tactics to justify your moves, sometimes you need to look harder. Thanks for reading!
