Game 2 vs TonyPrice


The second game in the 8-game match against Tony Price in the Online Chess Match Championships was very exciting. Since I don't have any previous records of his games, I have been unable to prepare. I played a main line French as Black, until my memory failed me on the 11th move and I introduced a weak novelty.

However, I managed to build up a strong king-side attack with the help of my open g-file. This proved enough, and a temporary pawn sacrifice of my b pawn, provided me with enough time to make the attack decisive.

After yesterday's win I am now leading the match 2-0.

I look forward to the coming games in the match, as I now have an opportunity to prepare, unless my opponent deviates from the earlier games.
