Games #35, #36, #37

Three more games played in a July Swiss at my club.  Time control of G65 d10.

Game #1 isn't much worth mentioning as I win a piece out of the opening against a much lower rated player, although I was a little nervous towards the end that I was allowing too much counter play.  Don't let his 700 rating fool you, he beat a 1300 player in the next round.

Game #2 is another in my continuing series of not being able to win winning games against higher rated opponents.

Game #3 is just a shellacking against a higher rated opponent after a series of weak moves in the opening.

  1. In the 3rd game, it looks like going into the QGD exchange structure doesn't work with the white pawn already on a4 : after ...a5, you have no minority attack. Instructive.
