Chess - a roller-coaster game

Jul 17, 2013, 7:59 AM |

How often do you find yourself losing, drawing, winning, drawing, losing, drawing and then winning again during a chess game? If you are at my level, probably pretty often!

I won my 2nd game in the Slow Swiss #7 Tuesday, important to give the team a win (if you do not play Slow Chess, go to the Dan Heisman Learning Centre here at!) and nice to finally get the better of my esteemed opponent.

Here's some annotations (annotating hopefully helps me improve as a player) of the game - and some thought about why the game turned so many times.
