    It was an enjoyable game vs a tough opponent, rated ECF 196 and FIDE 2012.

    Time controls were 45mins + 15secs increment

    I've shared what thoughts I had during the game, mixed in with some post-game analysis.

    I had White

    4NCL div3 rnd3 - Zak Tomlinson (146) vs Olivia Smith (196)



    It's a shame that this encounter was not in person... playing such players without actually "meeting" them.
    Let's just hope that live OTB chess is not too far over the horizon.

    Nice post Zak.
    I follwed most of your analysis but you know I'm not good enough to criticise or offer suggestions!!

    I stand in awe of you.

    Just completed my 4th online tournament of the year. Still losing to the same group of 9 - 12 year old's that have lived on chess.com for fully 1/2 of their lives. Things are improving (with all the speed of a battery chicken!) 4 down , and a long way to go. 😳

    Thanks guys.

    This online league is one game every 2 weeks, on Tuesdays.
    I'd much rather save competitive chess for weekend OTB tournaments, but sadly they are not available at the moment 😠

    Keep trying mchill, perhaps experiment in different openings if you haven't done so already.
    Several years later and I'm still adjusting my opening choices.
