A nice attacking finish

December 11, 2010

Every once in a year or two, you play a game where you “see everything”. This game was quite dull coming out of the opening – if my opponent had chosen to trade all the minor pieces, it would have probably ended up as a long grind against his positional weaknesses, like his backwards c-pawn. As it turned out, he underestimated my play on the king-side and focussed on his counter-play on the queen-side. It was nice to note afterwards that I had seen all the relevant lines that the computer spit out and taken the right decisions at the appropriate times.

Anyway, enough gloating 🙂 – Replay here (I was white).
