A good lesson about what not to do:
Play a petline of opponent that is much stronger than yourself;
Play something that you haven't studied for 10 years;
Play a high theorical line ( also tactical );

I hope you all enjoy my demolition... and understand ho important is to prepare for your game in an apropriate way!

Best regards,

rateodoro

Good game until Rc8. What was your thought process behind Rc8?

Also, have you taken into consideration (before Rc8) the potential unmasking of the light squared bishop opening up the f file with direct threats against your king? Pity it had to drastically end in such a fashion.

To be honest I had to play, I was wondering about the d-pawn advance but was unable to calculate till the end the line and I was pressed by time, so I played by ‘’instinct’’. I was worried about something like white’s a-pawn advance and a possible Bb6 winning the enchange in many lines, so I wanted to avoid this. This was the famous case of ‘’ I have calculated a move for a while and then I played other without hesitation ‘’.
After the correct ( and thematic ) d-pawn advance Black would have solved his openings problems ora t least would be playing a decent middle-game with chances to hold.
Anyway the problem was before the first move – my whole conception and my preparation.

Best regards
