Blitz with IM Milanovic: 2-2 Tied Match!
As I prepare for the Quebec Open happening next month, there are two events in which I'm also looking at: the Qc Open Blitz and Rapid tournament. Those time controls are 3+3 and 15+5, respectively.
Last night, I had the privilege of sparring with IM Milanovic. I was on the FIDE Online Arena looking sending challenges to titled players and he accepted! We played four games and all four games were intense, competitive, nerve-wracking and instructive.
I approached these gmes with aim to make the position as complicated as possible. I wanted to match his wits in tactics and calculation under time pressure. GM Har-Zvi recommends this approach.
Without further ado, here are the games. On the Online Arena his username is MrBird while on Chess.com his name is vojislavmilanovic
