My first adventure against the Stenitz
As a part of my new plan to improve my chess skills I will start posting blog updates about games that I have played here on Chess.com. You will have to endure my blunder infested games, after all I am in no way an expert of the game. But I hope that the blog posts will not only serve as output for myself, but also generate input from other users with tips or comments.
In this first post I will be kind to myself and post a win. It could just as well have been a loss though. I made mistakes in the game, but my opponent didnt use the chance to punish me for it. The game was a 15 min 10 sec increment game, and I somehow feel that all the blitz games I played recently has made me more eager to play fast, which might also explain the blunder in the game.
Anyhow, I have recently decided to start learning 1.e4 openings after being a 1.d4 player before. This was kind of a black hole that I felt the need to illuminate in order to actually improve as a player. My opponent answered with the Steinitz defence, and here is the game.
