In this game I have to face my worst fear, the English! jk tongue.png ...but only a little. I have been working on a new line against the English and here it is.. 1...e5! the most principled way to play grabbing the center on move 1.

 

The game translates into a Kramnik-Shirov Counterattack where white pushes e4 and we get a closed game where black manages to scoop a pawn but ends up in time pressure. Can your hero keep it together and convert?  Can she?  Am I even your hero?  You don't even know me.  haha

 

Enjoy!
