The tactical counterblow

by P.Leisebein (Leipzig)


The following game was played by me in one of the BDG tournaments of the SC Blankenberg. I played my pet defence. I still find it suitable to play for a win with black!

The game is also interesting from a theoretical poin of view. My novelty on move 9 interferes with the white ambitions!

Here we find the rare case, where the game is decided by a tactical blow from the black player More often, black tries to

make his extra pawn decide in the end game.
