I knew I shouldn't have played e5
Today was day 1 of the 2009 Minnesota Class Championship. It's my third tournament since starting playing early this year. After a bad first tournament and a decent second one, I am shooting for more success this time. This first game ended up with a win but not in a way that was very comforting. Luckily the second game went a bit better. In this I was debating e5 or playing the French with e6. I seem to do better with more set positions which makes e5 rather dangerous. Here's the annotated game so you can see what Class E looks like at times.
