Slow Swiss 5: Game 2

Apr 28, 2013, 1:47 AM |

Just played the 2nd game in the Slow Swiss #5 tournament. After losing in the first round, I was determined to come back with a win here! I was paired against Sharrocks, and was favourite (by ratings).

I thought I played this game pretty accurately and received the reward for it in a nice attack. It's difficult to castle queenside against the Hyper-Accelerated Dragon move order, as in many variations Black's attack is simply faster and more incisive. Anyway, this was a good win to get me off the mark, to 1/2. Thanks for reading!
