Hedgehog setup in Sicilian Kan
This game occurred in the final round of a Quad event in West Chester, PA this month. After mediocre play in the opening by both players, we ended up in a Sicilian Kan. I chose to defend this position with a Hedgehog setup and equalized with good chances. In time pressure I played an "idiot combination" and turned a good position into an equal one. Another inaccuracy, and I was looking at a struggle just to hold the draw.
After an astonishing double error on move 47, I managed to get down to a Rook and Pawn ending that had decent drawing chances.
Though I did draw this game, I'm a little disappointed in my lack of discipline at the board. Errors like the ones I committed in this game are a vexing problem of mine. I know better but I don't always do better. When am I going to learn?
