Coffee House Chess
Yesterday I played OTB at a local coffee house with my friend Yuriy. It had been a couple of months since I last played OTB and it took a few minutes to adjust my board vision and to slow down my play. It was an interesting game and a struggle as always playing against his very defensive style. I really tried desperately to open the game up, but he would have no part of it. eventually I just decided to trade some pieces off the board and that seemed to help.
