Leicestershire Major, Rd 3, K Bennett v S Dawkins

35 moves in 60 minutes, then 20 minutes to finish, with a 10 second increment from move 1.

An enjoyable game.  I had vague memories that you could give up the e-pawn for a decent attack in some lines of the KID.  I knew this was not one of those lines, but did it anyway, mis-remembering the correct move order.  It made for an entertaining game which both players enjoyed.  Neither of us ever thought I had enough compensation to win, but it was a genuine struggle for a while, nonetheless.
