Never Trust a 2400

Never Trust a 2400


I swear my skill level drops 800 points as soon as I get a winning position against someone over 2300. Nowadays, I can generally handle the pressure against the higher-rated players (especially compared to when I was first 2150), but this issue continues to dog me. That said, they're not *that* much higher-rated, so I guess I should fix it. happy.png

In the below game, I got my opponent out of book and was +2 or better for almost all of the game. Unfortunately, I straight-up walked into a mating net while up 3 pawns in the ending and had to settle for perpetual.
