It was a second round in the Thursdays club and my opponent was a boy rated 1481. He had White and played Queen’s Pawn. The game got positional from the beginning, I felt like I am gaining small advantages. Exchange on a3 paid off when he couldn’t put his knight on d3 and played Nc2. His position quickly started to deteriorate. I saw that he will be in trouble after 27… Qf4. After 29… Nf3 he faced mating threats and had to give up the queen. He still continued to play until got mated.
