A Complex Game
Some weeks ago I played in the 4NCL and I was lucky to get a chance to play a very strong opponent. I rarely get a chance to play strong players nowadays and I miss that, but on the other hand the rare chance I get puts additional pressure to raise my level and perform well.
The game turned out to be very complex. Chess was the same game for centuries, but I think that with the engines showing us so much we have also started to look more deeply and what was before only possible for the absolute best, being able to see deeply and calculate difficult lines, nowadays a lot of players of all levels are exposed to the complexity of the game. And then you also have the post-game engine-aided analysis when all hell breaks loose…
Here’s the game with my comments.
