This is a blitz chess game I played as white with time control 5|0. The opening played was the Catalan Opening, Closed. What to do when one side has a space advantage? Keeping all minor pieces on board can make life a little difficult for the side lacking space. Even though one side suffers from a material deficit in this one, there is piece activity that serves as some compensation.
