This game was played as part of the regular online Kapiti CC Level 2 Blitz Arenas that were replacing over-the -board Club meetings during COVID-19 Level 2. It was played on 1st September under a 5 + 5 time format, with annotations from David.
I enjoyed this game, even though I lost. I had been improving a little bit, and was starting to compete a bit better in games against Lars (who I think may be rated in the 1700’s). This game followed what was becoming a typical pattern, where I was competing ok in the openings, sometimes getting an advantage, and where the game then progressed to exciting finishes, and where I typically get low on time and lose my way.
