My Best Game Yet

Oct 30, 2009, 12:33 PM |

As crazy as it sounds, I've recently tried switching away from the Caro-Kann and taking up the Sicilian Dragon. It's probably hard to do a more complete 180 in the chess world, but my reasoning is that when I played the Caro-Kann, I never felt like I had good opportunities to go on the offensive. Most of my games felt like weathering the storm in the opening, getting a playable middle-game, and then often heading to an endgame. I'm not a competitive player and don't have a rating to worry about, so I thought I might as well take up an opening that will let me practice my tactics and have a bit of fun from time to time.  This game is one of my best showings yet. For some reason, I seem to play better from the black side.

Feel free to leave any comments and suggestions for improvement.
