Recently, a great friend of mine played the Kan in a Bay Area tournament and allowed me to share his games here. Happy Birthday Daniel! Additionally, the games are very interesting and instructional.

The first game features some interesting ideas from white regarding f4-g4 pawn storm early on and castling early. Black must play precise to avoid a huge attack and getting his pieces cramped.

In the second game, Some tactical motifs regarding e5 are discussed for white and black and how to respond correctly.
