"The blunders are there on the board, waiting to be made." - Tartakower

 

This is a game I played yesterday.  It is a 5 2 blitz game that went 87 moves, and encompassed fighting back from from being down a piece to a queen+3 pawn end game that I managed to retain an initiative that was then converted to a win.  There were many mistakes on both sides but It features an opening system that I enjoy playing. Namely the Italian with a white castling queenside.  I've sacked rooks and pieces to launch a winning kingside attacks.  The italian game can be boring and symetrical so I suspect the O-O-O with an attack surprises a lot of players in my rating zone.  Thank you Nigel Davies and Chessbase for the Modern Italian DVD:
