My 14th Game of the 2013/14 Season - A Draw with 1.d4

Jan 23, 2014, 4:17 PM |

2 days ago (21st Jan) I was up on board 1 again with the white pieces and after last week's loss with 1.b3 decided to play 1.d4 - ended up facing an opponent I only played 1.b3 a few weeks ago on 7th Jan lol and drew that game too! He's rated 133 ECF (1714) and I faced the Dutch Stonewall which he was very booked up on as I found out otb and in the analysis after.

His playing style is very similar to mine, and he's a nice bloke in real life too, good sportsmanship and analysis always. Here's the draw which helped our team win the match Smile



So yeah a quick draw but I was a pawn down and he even said he was finding it extremely hard to make progress so and I was also, the draw was mutual. I have 1 more game I played yesterday to upload which I played better than this one!
