I played 4 games at a chess tournament last weekend, winning three and drawing one. I thought I would post 2 of the games here to see what people thought of them, and if they had any improvements. I may post the others later.
Good games ! The first game white's opening play would have made sense if he was going to play an early e4 by playing 6.Bd3..Bxd3 7.Qxd3 followed by e4. But his passive 6th move 6.Be2 gave black the green light to enforce your own equalizing move (..e5) which was the correct plan after which since white had no active counterplay of his own could only defend against black's expansion on the kingside which leads to disaster !
Really - you think I was already better after Be2?
I need to get to an OTB rated Tournoment some time before I am 20 (probably when I go off to colege)
This is what i had in mind after (Be2)
Makes for an interesting game however white responds no matter who opens the c-file should give black an advantage.
Yes. perhaps that is a good idea.
Nice games, particularly against NN :)
Must ask, what were the time controls?
Time control were 90 30.
why were you black 2 rounds in a row.
