One of the most complex blitz games I've ever played, though most of the complexity and possibilities are in the variations. This game features a dropped queen followed by a comeback win in an extremely complicated position full of blunders, counter-blunders and some clever moves, all under extreme time pressure.
The game was a 5 2, which means each player started with 5 minutes with a 2 second increment after each move is played.
The opening is one of those where, as White, I typically feel that I have a very strong position, but it's always unclear exactly how to turn it into a win. Black complicates early with a dubious ...f5 and the fireworks begin!
