Wrong Coloured Rook Pawn and the Urge to Always be Active
An interesting game in terms of material imbalance, defence and theoretical positions against an opponent I'm having a lot of trouble with.
After 24. Bf1 I'm actually not sure if I have any advantage despite being an Exchange up for a pawn.
After 30. ... e5 I would say Black has the best of it, with his centralised Bishop causing more havoc than a Rook.
46. Ra2?? loses immediately. This comes back to a bad attitude in defence by me. I constantly feel the need to be active, but here it is more important to hold the blockade and maintain c2.
