Close encounter with an IM
A few weeks ago, I played in a fun tournament in which I got to play and International Master and former Swedish champion, Mr. Dan Cramling. As you can understand, I did not expect anything apart from being completely wiped off the board. But as it turned out, it wasn't all that bad.
So how can I summarize this? Well, first of all, it was fun to get the opportunity to play an IM. That being said, I was surprised that he did not wipe me away with some brilliant tactical combination. But maybe his strategy was to simply wait for me to blunder and then take advantage. After all, that's what happened in the game. But despite this, I was not that far away from getting a holdable endgame. But I guess that mr IM would have beaten me with technique if that had been the case. Anyway, it was a fun game.
