A win in the Petroff

October 15, 2010

After playing several games against my opponent as black, this was my first chance with white! The game itself wasn’t very exciting but I kept just enough pressure that my opponent started to take a fair amount of time for his moves. End result – his flag fell in a slightly worse position with 5 more moves to the time control!
