Standard #38: A Challenger Emerges

Standard #38: A Challenger Emerges


Here I present a game played against fellow YouTuber Bryan Castro of Better Chess Training!  We are of similar rating although I suspect he's a decent amount stronger than myself, but nonetheless I took up his challenge.    We agreed to two games of G30 on where we both analyze the game from our own perspective on our respective medias.  Here is the first where I sport the white pieces. 

Brian chooses an opening I am unfamiliar with and I have to admit I was pretty scared of vicious sacrifices, but I think I navigated through okay.  The game goes into a fairly equal middle game where there is a key instructive moment.  Full analysis in the videos!
