"Most club players, still haven't got the feintest idea on what do to against '2. f4...'"
IM Andrew Martin
"I looked over to your board when I see you made the move f4 (2. f4), I seen the quick surprise look on the kid's face, but he took your pawn without hesitation..."
Roger Pedersen (1st Opponent/1st Game)
I was tied with this Kid 3.5 - 3.5; it was a tie breaker game...
I have played Matthew twice in previous tournaments (San Diego County Championship and Southern Cross Cali Championship 2013); with a score of 1.5; the last game I played against him, I was ahead, but he managed to even out the game and I had to opt for a draw by perpetual check to alleviate any risks. As we met for the 3rd time, I decided to play with black shades Lol, but it served me well... I was already ahead in the tournament, that if I drew with him, or won, I would have still been #1, but if I lost, that would take me out of the #1 spot.
