The Worst Tournament of My Life Game Two

Mar 12, 2013, 3:22 PM |

After my disasterous lose in Round One I vowed to win the rest of my games at all costs. I was going to try to play my best chess yet. I still had a slim chance of winning the tournament, but even if I won the rest of my games, the cards would have to fall just right in order for me to get first.


In the second round I had to face a 1300. I had played quite a few games against her before. I was determined to crush her Two Knights  Defense. However, she played a insane move in the opening which should be extremely bad. I played what I thought was a refutation but if she had put her queen on the right square I would have had difficulties and she would have been a least slighty better. However she put her queen on a different square and then... a brillant drama appeared on the 64 squares.

All I can say is WOW, I am glad I survived. Amazingly at the end I still had not developed any of my queenside pieces. I think I will dub this game The 'queenside that never moved' or something to that effect.
