The Night I gave up the Stonewall: KingCo League Round 9

NM Joseph_Truelson

The last week of KingCo chess league did not go well. We already knew we would not qualify for the state come petition, even worse we had to play Overlake. In a blitz match, Overlake lost 1-4 against Issaquah, a surprising result as they had higher rated players. So we would have to play Overlake. And we lost, 1-4 also. I played a bad StonewAll, which means I won't show the game.

Oh well, now I should try a Nimzo-Indian!

Takeaway: I hate to praise anyone but myself, but RookSacrifice is amazing against the Dutch Defense! Here is why:

This is the game that really made me give up the Dutch Defense.
