Game 2

me - NN

Result: 1/2-1/2
Site: Banqiao First Stadium, New Taipei City, Taiwan
Date: 2014.07.13
[...] 1.e4 e5 2.♘f3 ♘c6 3.♗b5 a6 4.♗a4 ♘f6 5.O-O This looks at first sight like it hangs the pawn and my opponent seemed to think so. 5...♘xe4 6.♖e1 ♘g5 7.♘xe5 ♘xe5 8.♖xe5 ♗e7 9.d4 O-O 10.♘c3 d6 11.♖e1 I'm not sure about this one. At the time I wanted to play Re3 instead. This seemed to kind of be undeveloping my rook. However, I had a recent game where I moved my rook out in front of my king position and it ended up getting trapped and I had to give up the exchange. So maybe I was a bit timid about leaving it in harms way. 11...♗d7 12.♗b3 ♗e6 13.d5 ♗d7 The last 3 ply seem to be a clear gain for me. 14.♘e2 h6 15.♕d3 c6 16.c4 c5 Not sure why she chose to play c5 in two moves instead of one. (I was a bit worried about 16...cxd5 17.cxd5 ♗b5) 17.♗c2 g6 18.g3 ♗f5 19.♕d2 ♗xc2 20.♕xc2 ♘f3 21.♔f1 ♘xe1 A nice tactic by my opponent. 22.♔xe1 ♗g5 23.f4 ♗f6 24.f5 ♔h7 25.fxg6 fxg6 26.♘f4 ♕e7 27.♔f1 ♖g8 28.h4 h5 29.♘xh5 ♗e5 30.♘f4 ♗xf4 31.♗xf4 ♕d7 32.♔g2 ♕g4 33.♖e1 ♖ae8 34.♖e3 ♖xe3 35.♗xe3 ♖e8 36.♕d2 ♕e4 37.♔f2 ♕xc4 38.♗f4 ♖f8 39.♕e3 ♕c2 40.♕e2 ♕xe2 41.♔xe2 ♖e8 42.♔d3 b5 43.♗xd6 c4 44.♔c3 ♖d8 45.♗f4 ♖xd5 46.♗c7 ♖d7 47.♗a5 ♖d3 48.♔b4 ♖xg3 49.♔c5 ♖g2 50.♗c3 I stopped recording here. I believe her next move was g5 which seems like a big mistake to me because she should be able to just take my h pawn and then force me to give up the bishop for her g pawn and then queen or just checkmate me. In the end it turned into a draw with me kind of making a fortress type position with the king, bishop, and pawns. In the end we just traded everything off. She was in time trouble at least at the point where I stopped recording and maybe earlier. She was down to just a minute or less.
