BCC Summer Swiss Round 6

Last week I played on board 3 and recieved a totally expected solid thrashing from one of the strongest players in the Brisbane Chess Club.  My lessons from this game were:

  1. If you have a major weakness in your position, deal with it.
  2. If you are going to sacrifice material, calculate and make sure it works.

    I think what you need is my best-selling lesson: Development-Initiative.

    30...Rc8 was a vital loss of tempo.

    Instead, 30...a5 would be much better.

    You are still in a losing position but much better off than after Rc8. Perhaps a5 would give you some drawing chances still because your opponent will probably play far from perfect.
