I don’t get to play Titled Tuesday much on chess.com.
When I do, I always want to make use of the opportunity to brush off some rust and study new opening ideas.
I played an interesting opening and got what I wanted out of the opening. In the middle game, I had the tide on my side and would have made small improvements to make it less complicated.
When it turned to the endgame and time scramble, nerves got in the way, and I couldn’t finish off the game.
In the end, mission to brush off rust and study new openings were accomplished for this game, but the result was not satisfactory.
This game helped me to feel even stronger about how blitz can help me improve.
For anyone in the Southeast, CCSCATL will have an in-person Blitz Tourney on Saturday, July 21. Hope to see you there!
