FIDE Amateur World Championship - Round 1
Well I survived round 1, albeit with a loss. The game was exciting and its great to play OTB again! I had the white pieces and thought that I had an advantage in the opening and middlegame. I ran into time trouble at move 38 and what felt like total physical exhaustion at move 31 (I worked a full day today), so it was downhill quickly from there. My opponent missed a pawn opportunity in the opening, or maybe he thought that my lead in development would compensate. Here is the game, for what it's worth. I haven't had a chance to let a computer analyze it.
I am looking forward to the games tomorrow. Hopefully, I won't be exhausted!
