My 10th Game for my Club - my 5th WIN!!

After a run of draws I finally have another victory with the white pieces! Today, 22nd February 2012, has been spent feeling physically run down - I wasn't even sure if I'd be playing tonight... but I felt mentally sharp enough to play. I was moved up again to board 4, so although I arrived expecting to be on board 5 with the black pieces, due to our opponents' team being short, there were only 4 boards - I took the place of our team captain, graded 127 ECF (1666 FIDE), so it was good that he had faith in me to get the point for our team.

So a lovely finish there, the queen just covers everything! I played my slow positional game, secured a slight advantage, never went for wild tactics - everything was all thought out, and converted the advantage into a comfortable win!! Cool

    I definately need help with tactical play, my tactical game is weak(ish) but I can  usually play a strong positional game when it's required...

    Interesting game I have not learned how to play positional games. I need to study this I love more space and attacking chances. See you soon (next year if I can still walk on water)

    Thanks for the comments - hopefully in a year or 2 I will have an understanding of at least your level!

    I was impressed with your play. except that you didn't punish his opening, you go 3. cxd5 nxd5 and now you don't play 4. e4?! because 4... Nf6 5. Nc3 e5! is at least equal but instead you play 4. Nf3 preventing e5 and then you follow up with e4, develop all your pieces comfortably and have a solid advantage with more space and attacking chances!
