Game 47: From the Jaws of Defeat

May 27, 2014, 8:55 PM |

This game occured on May 27, 2014.  My opponent is unrated, and this is his first OTB tournament as far as I can tell (he asked about how the clock worked).  He did really well.  He knew his opening, and managed to take advantage of an error of mine to win a piece (for 3 pawns).

I fought back as hard as I could, and managed to win by going deep on the tactics.  I thought this was a very exciting game.

(Later, I still need to figure out where I went wrong losing that piece though!)
