Jose surprised me by playing 1.e4 again in this Match (usually he'd do it only once in a match, just like I do it to play against his Sicilian)
After a tough battle in the middle game and some mistakes on his part I acquired a winning advantage with 2 extra pawns, but in just one move I messed it up really bad.
|Another fighting French against my friend Jose.|
On move 38 I only had 1 minute to reach move 40, no excuses, but I should had seen such an easy threat in 1 second and lost my concentration, blundering a whole piece.
I tried to survive but to no avail. Jose wrapped up the ending nicely and deservedly won the game.
What can I say?
