Yesterday  I played the young talented German player Theo Gungl.

I played the Chebanenlo Slav. He won space with the c5 variation and got an advantage. I need to sacrifice a pawn to keep the game going. He could win the game if played more patiently, but instead went to a rook endgame with an extra pawn, where my king became very active and after a few mistakes, I sacrificed one more pawn and got a winning position, but I missed his brilliant defense, by going to a rook and pawn versus queen fortress which gave him the draw:
