Lars Dobbertin-King v Ross Jackson (31-10-23)

Game of the week was definitely a game of two halves. Ross playing the black side of a Caro-Kann (!), played a nice positional game and had the initiative early. This initiative increased on move 21, when Lars was forced to recapture on f3 which severely weakened his kingside. The weak king was harassed by the Black queen who collected some pawns along the way. However, when Ross played 35…f6, in an attempt to activate his rook along the f-file, he opened lines against his own king. This gave Lars active counterplay which culminated in a great finish.
