No losses in 5 straight games now

April 20, 2008

I managed to hold a much higher-rated opponent to a draw on the white side of a Caro-Kann this past week. As is typical in the Caro-Kann, white enjoyed a space advantage for most of the game, but black was solid and impregnable. Once he was able to make his pawn breaks, we liquidated to a drawn endgame.

After the game, we discussed a couple of variations where black could have played more aggressively and ended up with an extra pawn in a rook-endgame, but being in severe time trouble, he chose to take the safe approach. All in all, quite a boring game indeed.
