45/45, Round 3 (ding!)

I won my recent 45/45 Team game (link), albeit in ragged fashion. I was more accurate in my OTB games last year, and I think it's an indication that I have switched in not seeing OTB as well to not seeing computer screen boards as well. I certainly give my opponent credit for coming up with challenging ideas, some of which threw me off a bit.

5. h3 essentially allowed Black to equalize early. 5... c5 would have even been stronger.

I thought 19... e5 (threatening e4) was a great move, but unfortunately White's Knight to b6-e5 gains the d pawn.

I thought about 27...Rd4 but didn't play it fearing mate, but it really was stronger.

28...Here I totally was blind to the open 6th rank mate. I really think I would have seen this OTB as last year I adjusted towards playing long games that way. Another semi-horrible thing to note was that haste was a factor at this point, even with 20 + minutes available on my clock. Having this be a team game made for more pressure, which I really need to set aside. I also need to really follow my own darn advice of "give each position a fresh look".

That is from the "Test" section, i really had no touch that it would have been a gw2 goldlover issue. I'm to Some a few minutes per trouble, although I did not make use of all my time period ahead of I started betting (negative!). Most likely I had been just a little worn out, but that is not very much of the reason. Immediately after not really discovering by any means to prevent the two pawns, I just commenced creating very lazy spouse risks which in turn Lastly exhibited the actualDiablo 3 items silent solution involving Rg56. Complicated, right?
