My Games 17-22/9/2016 - Exploiting a Big Center

Sep 23, 2016, 5:56 AM |

At last, my first ever Team Match (TMCL 2016 Sub-Div. WL2 R7) game is done! And it was a victory! It was a fun game (like any other victories, for all of us!) and I'm feeling like posting it. 

Since I've never made a blog consisting only one game, I'm going to add another one that features a very different win, yet also a satisfying one. First of all, it's a 3|2 game (compared to the 3 days/move game). Second, I blundered a piece, whereas in my Team Match game I was dominating the entire game. 

Here are the games. Enjoy!


25th August - 22nd September

17th September

To sum up, in the first game, NEVER play passively when you are facing a big pawn center. Make tensions, and break up the center, otherwise, you will get absolutely crushed! On the other hand, when you have a big center, make sure it is solid as rock before you go for the kill.

In the second game, when you are down on material, especially in blitz, just go all out for the attack! No one wins by defending while being down on material. Try to catch his monarch before he can even show off his extra pieces!
Have a great weekend, folks!
