Today’s game is an online tournament game. I overlooked the proper recapture of my f6-Knight w/ 8...Bxf6?!, which lost a Pawn. Otherwise the opening was satisfactory. In the early middlegame, I missed a complex, game-deciding tactic. This shows the importance of examining all checks, captures and threats (CCT) on almost every move. Later I was able to gain advantage of the exchange. A later trade of the Bishop for a Knight and Pawn brought on the endgame. I centralized the King and realized a winning endgame where my King was in front of my Pawn and I had the opposition. Winning from this position is easy.
The variations and move symbols are Houdini’s (1.5 32-bit), diagnosed with ‘Scid vs PC’ at 20 seconds per ply. The verbal comments are my thoughts during the game and my interpretations of the analysis provided by Houdini. The score chart is at the bottom of this entry.
