The Semi-Slaw opening 1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.Nc3 e6 is a ubiquitous guest in the Engine Masters. White has several direct approaches to fight against this setup, but it is also possible to play in less forcing ways. Gilgamesh demonstrated such a setup in his encounter with DracoDaatson from round 9. He developed his bishops to b2 and d3 and his knights to f3 and d2. Black apparently underestimated White's opening treatment and played some inaccurate moves. Suddenly, almost out of nowhere, Black had to face a white rook on the fourth rank and a strong attack. Eventually White managed to sacrifice a piece on Black's kingside and Black resigned (somewhat prematurely) on move 31.
