Learning the Sicilian

Feb 6, 2014, 4:01 PM |

30|0 game on Live Chess this evening. I had the black pieces and lost, but it was a really instructive game for me, and after my blunder which lost the rook, I felt I started thinking and playing significantly better, even though defending a losing position and ultimately being checkmated. My annotations are below.

(Sorry, my annotations were initially screwy because I forgot I was looking at the board from black's perspective... couldn't get it to work correctly when I modified the game in this post, so it's now in a comment below.
