    Gratulation.
    Were you Black and he /she?/ tried too much to force a win?

    No i was white actually. I think he tried to get a bit cute with 16..b5 which allows me to untangle somewhat. The resulting play is quite forced. I regretted playing f3 instead of a5 later on as it seems to waste a tempo. Maybe there was a way to win possibly but it's very hard to calculate. I wanted the bishop to control g2 and h1. The computer only gave me 2 inaccuracies in a 50+ move game! Really chuffed 😀

    Yes I challenged him on twitch. I lost one to a blunder then played this game. I like the white side of the Maroczy bind, you can choose whether you want it sharp or positional.. 🙂

    Twitch? Is that a chess site?

    No. We played on lichess but the game was streamed to twitch.com. It is a site, kind of like a live youtube where you can watch people playing games with commentary. lichess have a link on their main page for people who are streaming games played on their site. It's really rather good if you just fancy kibitzing with a cup of tea. 🙂

    The master who i played in this game has his own channel and accepts challenges from viewers live on air..
