I re-started playing online chess during the 2020 lockdowns, and I was very impressed by some Nepomniachtchi's games played in the first half of the Yekaterinburg Candidates tournament, where the h-pawn advance was decisive. To be able to put the ideas I learned then into use more often, I stared to play h4 on move one and 1...h5 as Black. It served me in good stead.

It's not for me to clip the moments where I was unsuccessful. I certainly had a fair share of those. So I especially appreciate the streamers who avoided to show my bad chess moments, for me those are the best streamers.

But I also had good Twitch moments. The following links lead to some of those. Most of them are hardly my best games, but still, I enjoyed those games a lot.
