Taking ideas from the stream ( maybe not executed perfectly, but still executed!) I entomb his light squared bishop, then attack on the other side of the board!
Fun game in the Benko! Lots of presure even before my opponent was nice enough to hand me his queen!
The Dragon is hungry! My opponent loses in 12 moves!
I have been working on the strategy of playing against my opponents pieces. in this game my opponent's bishop never gets to move!
Time control: 3+0

Finally, I want to add that I played this game without having watched the Crushing the Scandinavian defence course.
I controlled this one almost all the way through! I did miss a hanging queen late in the game, but I was winning by so much it didnt alter the outcome!

I hope some of my games are interesting.. Thanks chessmood for his wonderful opening repo. I only saw one time all lessons and I remember some ideas and because of that I am still winning games. I am playing less and learning more now a days. Especially watching classics so I will learn more pattern and concepts.
New PRO member in the family! Edo from Tokyo, nice to meet you all!
I just played a tournament practice game with the standard time used in Japan, with 45 min + 15 sec. It is a Benko Gambit game, where the white opponent felt the pressure all the game and was unable to find good moves because of it. The funny thing is that I watched all the benko gambit files only once, but the instruction is so crystal clear that even after missing a couple of chances my opponent was still tied up. Time did the rest but, no more talking and I hope that you enjoy the game annotated by me for you all and feel the pressure of the right mood... (at least that is what I was thinking during the game).
