King and Boog - Slow Games - 24/05/2014

May 24, 2014, 8:13 AM |

Our first game was set at a time control of 30 '5; plenty of time to calculate. However, we both played a bit too quickly, and I was lucky not to succumb to a brutal offensive early on in the game, which left my king running. 


The second game was set at 30 '15. We slowed right down and performed a lot better positionally. The middlegame was especially tense and exciting, with the loss of my queen followed by a mad pawn-push to re-queen and a brutal well-delivered back-rank mate. Well played, indeed.
