A Slow Swiss game


Here is an interesting game played in one of our recent Slow Micro-Swiss tournaments. I include it here as, to my knowledge, it hasn't been put up in a blog by the players. In future, an increasing number of games will be posted in blogs for your enjoyment and analysis.

In this case, the annotations are by the loser rather than by the winner. Doing this with your own lost games will help you improve a lot more quickly than if, like many of us, you push them aside and ignore them. To not look over your your lost games in particular deprives you of many useful lessons in chess. As painful as it might be, take the time to work through them and work out why you lost, look for improvements and see how your opponent took advantage of your mistakes. I think you will be pleasantly surprised how that will help your chess improve.
