My last game of last year

January 21, 2011

During my current break from chess (I am not scheduled to play for 2 more weeks), I realised that I hadn’t posted my last game from last year. It was a weird game, from beginning to end – I was out of theory on move 2(!) but felt that my higher-rated opponent didn’t necessarily play as well as his rating would imply! Ours was the last game to finish in the league match and the victory allowed us to draw the match at 2.5-2.5. Anyway, here’s the game (I am black).
