Learning from Losses and Managing the Initiative

For today’s video, I dug up a game I played three years ago at the Fairfax Open against a former coach. While I wound up losing the game, I thought that this game was particularly instructive, and shows just how fickle the initiative can be. Pay special attention to how each side missed opportunities to win, and try to see if you can also find your own improvements.

At the time I played this game, I was rated 1900, and I think that this game is a fair representation of what play is like at that level. The video went kind of long, but I’m hoping I was able to break it down so everybody can understand the battle that took place. Enjoy!
