|Engin IFG 2018 team in action|
Also, still amazed how Engin was able to get 3rd this year... but definitely happy to have another day well spent on chess (:
What can we learn from this game?
- Watch out for weak squares around your position: White's neglect of the queenside weak dark squares allowed Black to mount a full scale invasion of the c-file.
- Don't ignore king safety: The over-ambitious 21... Rc2 weakened my back rank, allowing White to force a massive simplification.
- Look out for crucial tempo-gaining checks, such as the resource ... Qd5+/Qc6+ which consistently materialized for Black in the endgame.
Kudos to my teammates for putting up such a good fight, and congrats again for getting 3rd!
|Great job everyone!|
