A Bittersweet Result

I'm sure all of us have had similar circumstances.  We're paired in a tournament with someone rated far higher than us in a key game.  If you're anything like me, your 'must win' feeling definitely overpowers your 'no chance' instinct.


Here is a fascinating game I played on chess.com (finished today) where I was in a 'must win' scenario.  I had already dropped a game to my opponent in this tournament, and so a full point was required to move on. 

Thankfully, I had white.

Sadly, I didn't win :P.


It's a fun game to watch!  Very accurate, and incredible defense of an inferior position by my opponent.
