A confession, I haven’t watched much chess this week as I have been slightly under the weather for a few days.

So, for no good reason, other than not looking at any other games, I have chosen a game played by myself in the Thanet All Play All.

My opponent played the opening stage passively, and I quickly obtained an edge. His pieces were cramped and my attacking plan seemed obvious. However I played a couple of bad moves, including opposite side castling and the game looked to be favouring him. In turn he then missed a good move which allowed me to regain the advantage.

In no way a faultless display but quite exciting and hopefully instructional to see how both players managed to lose the thread having worked hard to achieve a better position
