2011 Western Class Championships, Round 1 (Again)

2011 Western Class Championships, Round 1 (Again)

Apr 6, 2011, 12:49 PM 4

Here is my 2nd 1st round game (due to re-entry) from the 2011 Western Class Championships with full annotations and commentary:

A disappointing game for me. I feel like I was pressing for a good part of the game. Maybe in retrospect I pressed the position a little too hard, in turn just giving myself a weak open King position to deal with for the rest of the game which in the end was my undoing. The lesson here probably is to play the position as is rather than try to do extra than what is required or asked for from the given position. Instead of doing some crazy kingside pawn advances like I did, I should just play normal logical moves and if I play correct eventually I should get a good position.

Any thoughts or feedback would be greatly appreciated as I am always looking to find where I could have improved throughout the course of the game and I am trying to understand what I can learn from the game for the future.
