Waldorf Open Final Round

At this point in the tournament I had 2.5, as did the fellow I played last round. There was someone with 3 (the guy I play now) and a 900 with 2.5. So I played the 3 and the 1521 played the 900. During my game the 1521 was just dead lost against the 900, and I had the tiebreaks over the 900 by a mile, but then towards the end of the game when he was a rook and 2 pieces up (I kid you not) the 900 just kept sitting there and writing down his moves instead of moving. If he had just asked the TD for insufficient losing chances he would have gotten it (it was 2 rooks, 2 pieces, and like 5 pawns against 1 rook and 2 pawns or something), and if he just freaking moved he would have won. Instead he lost on time. It was unbelievable that I lost out on an extra $75 because of that. I was not a happy camper.

Anyways, my game was rather messy, and I was losing at various points, as I expected. But as normally happens in the Pirc, my opponent misses all of his chances and then I outcalculate him when it matters. I am not going to be this lucky all the time. Here is my ugly, ugly, game.

Askine 1597 - NN 1376

I'm hoping to go to NIH on Wednesday so hopefully I will have something new for you all on Thursday.

Don't be too agressive when playing against the Pirc. The Pirc, like the Caro-Kann, is designed for over-agressive white players who don't know what they're doing.
