Bonus Post 15 – The Slump Buster Game

To say that I have been in a slump in tournament play is the understatement of the century.

The slump ended tonight with this game. I am on White, and my opponent is one of the handful of kids that regularly participates in an otherwise adult tournament.

61 moves – all done very quickly (at least on my end).

As for how it ended: Black resigned right after the pawn was promoted. Put simply, there was a real possibility that I could have checkmated him on my next turn.

The opening was classified as a Queen’s Pawn Opening: Zukertort Chigorin Variation.

  1. d4 d5
  2. Nf3 Nc6
