My most recent game..

Just felt like I needed to post this...2012 has sucked for me so far on many fronts, and generally my chess performance is badly influenced by the non-chess stuff....so all my games in January were horrible. But this one from Feb 1st played in the chess league here in NYC was finally a good one. I liked the easiness with which I got to White's kingside. It seems that he is helpless against my pieces piled up on g3, but actually there was an amazing tactical shot there which we both missed- it was not so easy to see, but actually this would have given him an advantage. The way game went, his defense fell apart, and seeing 19..e4 felt comforting:). Hopefully I'll be able to play stronger this month and in the future ones.

    I don't know much about playing the Dutch- here I like to use it against the English, it's pretty clear-cut plan, and the early pawn advance to e5 is possible because he doesn't open with d4, like in the regular Dutch- again, just my naked-eye impressions, because there may be some theoretical nuances I don't realize.

    Yepp, in particular with having both pawns e and f (!) advancing early on!

    Stephan, as the Dutch addict you are, I suppose you must have liked my position sitting at the board next to mine:)
