What goes round must come around

Today I will be looking through another 2 of my online correspondence games, both against the same opponent. Here’s the fun part: Both of us employed parallel ideas of kingside attack, sacrifices and square domination against each other. What goes round… must come around!

Without further ado, here’s the first game, where I offered relatively feeble resistance:

Funnily enough, the kingside sacrificial attack that my adversary wrought upon me seemed so effective, I decided to copy it. And who else to test it against than the same opponent? When they say that your opponent is your teacher, this can’t be truer over here.

Very good lessons from these games, and here’s to more exciting correspondence/OTB games in the future!
