Best OTB Game... But I still lost.

My recommended treatments:
 
Chekhover (Sicilian) as White (To solve your bishop pair problem)
 
Modern Defense (as black) to learn not everything is about attacking- sometimes just slight positional gains.
 
You are still slightly beginner, suffering from these two horrid chess diseases, but with time and logic, you may eventually overcome this.

Hmm, well I actually do like playing the White side of the 4 knights with an exchange (I simply did not see 14.Bg5), and I play the Pirc fairly often and let my opponents overextend, not trying to counter attack until later, as well as playing Caro-Kanns, Petroffs, et cetera (not flashy attacking openings). But when I have a position such as this I demand an attack from the position, and that is indeed something to get over. I have recently switched back over to the Sicilian, but I have had good fun with such openings as the Pirc. Your comments are appreciated. happy.png

Don't get into an attacking fever, then.

 

Hey, may I use this game for my blog?

Go right ahead, if people get instruction from my losses aside from myself, all the better.
