This game is part of a 10play all-tournament and I’ve got one game left to finish in this tournament and although I’ve won just more than half of the games, I’m really not doing well in this tournament! I don’t like to play the all-play-all-tournaments, because I’m not really very focused when playing so many games suddenly, therefore, I prefer to join knockouts only as it adds only one new game to the existing games. In this game, ( I played black) game 15, my King got chased around a lot and I also swapped my Queen quite early in the game. Although I had the upper hand in this game at one stage, I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a win for me. I haven’t played the player before and wasn’t sure if I could trust myself to beat him! I was lucky to get his pawn before he could get it promoted! But then, I was lucky to get my pawn promoted, so that sped up the game quickly. What I like about the end, is the position of my Rooks, the Rook on D4 immediately prevented him from an escape when I made the final move with my Queen.
