Exchange sacrifices | round 4 of Vezerkepzo June IM | Turzo-Neverov

In round 4 of the Vezerkepzo international tournament I played with 4 times Ukrainian Champion International Grandmaster Valeriy Neverov.

I got a small advantage out of the opening. I played the e3-e4 pawn break too early and allowed him to equalize. I got double isolated pawns which dominated the center and my position was better. Then I misevaluated a possible exchange sacrifice, which way he equalized the game. 

A few moves later I sacrificed back the exchange for a better endgame and he found a nice combination to force perpetual check.
