Last year in 2012 I hold the 1000 Bright Minds event, where I played simultaneously with more than 1000 players. One of my opponents, Alan, asked my opinion about our game. I annotated the game and I share it with you.

He played the Morra Gambit which gives good attacking chances and I think it was a good idea to play it when I had to focus on more than 1000 games.

He had a winning possibility in the opening. He had a development advantage and he needed to sacrifice a knight to break in to my position. He continued to play slowly which game me the time to consolidate and win in the endgame. When you study the game, then sometimes you can read my annotations just under the board. Please write a comment if you have any questions or ideas about the game! Thank you for your attention.
