My 11th Game of the 2013/14 Season - A Draw with 1.b3

Jan 7, 2014, 3:42 PM |

Today I played on board 5 for my club's first team and faced a 133 ECF opponent who I have actually played before but I couldn't remember what I played last time so just played 1.b3 as that's what I'm most prepared on atm, but my next "white" game I'll play 1.d4 because that's 2 draws in a row now with 1.b3 (albeit to stronger opponents but I need some more wins lol)



After the second draw offer, and the fact I just started on antibiotics today and am pretty tired I just accepted it. If this was a tournament game I'd have played on though. I'd love this position in a tournament where I was fresh and had hours on my clock.

But on the plus side that's my last 12 games in a row undefeated so I know my defensive skills and tactics are great I just need to work more on capitalizing on the initiative, but that skill will improve with time Cool
