Liberty Bell Open Round 7
Apr 6, 2016, 6:07 AM 2
Earlier this year, I played in the Philadelphia open. I was able to score 3.5 in the U1700 section (two wins, two losses, two draws.) The last round was this scotch against Benjamin Li, a very talented six year old. When I imported the game to lichess.org the computer evaluation returned no inaccuracies, mistakes or blunders on either side.
I always feel more comfortable as black in the scotch if I can get the knight to e5. In this tournament, I had the black pieces twice against the scotch. In both games my opponents allowed this. I was able to win the other game because of an endgame mistake by my opponent.
