I started my preparation with a 3 minutes game where my opponent played the Dutch stonewall. I forgot my line and moved into a nice tactics. I nearly saved the game by time, but lost at the end.

This was the game:

Then I started to review the Dutch variations and share a few important one with you:

Then I solved checkmate puzzles. Can you solve a few of them?

Then I lost a game in the eglish defense where I think I had a better position, but missed it in the time trouble:
After the game I started to research the english opening. Probably I will play 1.c4 c6 to go to the slav type of structures or to the Panov-attack.
I wish you had fun with today's puzzles, and games. See you tomorrow!
