MTK 4.5-Sztaki 1,5
The unrated Monday Team events are great for getting extra practice, and I need all I can get.
I went with TWIX over Snickers again and the twin towers of chocolate and caramel were the difference.
I won on board 2. Boards 1,3 were quick draws.
Vienna Gambit 2..Nf6 3.f4
The opening was a surprise as early as move 3 as my empty mind drew a blank and I had to improvise but it seemed like my opponent was of a similar mindset. At some point I was given an exchange and a winning position which I misplayed on the way to a win in the endgame.
I calculated to here previously and had something in mind and then after a double-check of the line things looked pretty good.
Black has a hanging rook and the passed e,f pawns look quite dangerous.
