My Most Intense Match

Aug 15, 2009, 3:39 AM |

Hi all, this is one of my recent OTB matches for the open tournament of my district. It was against the city's reigning champion, and it was my first time that I played him in a tournament. Time control was an hour each plus 10 second Fischer increment per move, though the game lasted approximately 2 and a half hours. I was white. Although I didn't win, it was by far the most intense, and closest game that I have ever played against a better opponent. This marathon game wore me out so much that I lost the next game in about 45 minutes.

Please try and help me analyse this game.
