The Bind

This is possibly the most one-sided game I've ever played against a strong opponent. It comes from Round 5 of the recent 2013 Amateur Team East. My opponent was unfamiliar with the opening and made a horrible decision early on (f5). To be honest, I didn't know this opening either. A friend showed me a similar game he played in Round 1 of the same tournament around 11pm the night before, and when the Caro Kann was played against me the next morning, I decided to go for it on a whim. It turned out to be my best game from the tournament...or at least the most beautiful.

    Wow I played the same thing in cocoo beach with the bind but I was so close of winning. My score was 3.0. I have done really bad the last two tournament with only three points. I am working real hard on trying to come back with 5.0 or 7.0

    That's a pretty nice game... And a nice decoy to finish it all off. :)
