Game Spotlight: NCC 60th Open 7
I knew I wanted to highlight this game as soon as I input it at the 2018 Nairobi Chess Club Open Championship. There’s two things I think are notable about this game. First, White does a good job getting into a favourable middlegame, but then seems to lose his way with respect to how to play the position. Second, impatience in the endgame can be fatal. (It’s possible time trouble was a part of this — I’m not aware of what was happening with either player’s time management in the game.)
Lessons are back at the club. Come by this Saturday, when we’ll be looking at identifying weaknesses.
