Lucky win - remember not to leave your pieces hanging...

An entertaining tussle, where a major mistake settles what was an even match, maybe with white ahead slightly.

Analyzing with my opponent after the game, we agreed that black has some problems creating anything with a very passive knight on a6, and my knight ready to go to d6 where I hoped it would be a decisive factor in helping me turn a slight advantage into a win.

There is a great work being done by volunteers here at, creating slow leagues - this was round 1. If you are interested in slow chess, check out Dan Heisman's Learning Center!
