Here, I would like to present a detailed analysis of the fourth game in an ongoing match between chess.com member 'Shuttlechess92' and myself.

Prior to this game I led the match 2-1 (all three games were decisive victories for the white pieces, this largely due to mutually agressive repertoires with the black pieces.)

In this game, I intended to play safely, perhaps settling for an early draw if the opportunity arose.  Such a result would be quite alright with the black pieces.

 

However, a highly unusual attempt at avoiding my opening preparation had me 'seeing red' and I went for the kill with black.  The game is quite interesting.  I've annotated it fully.
