Last night I played my first Rook (Club Championship) game of the season. I was Black against Ian Comley. Ian played the opening weakly and soon ended up in an inferior position. This was surprising as he had played the same opening correctly in a previous encounter. Although I didn’t press my advantage home as vigorously as I might have, Ian played several weakening moves and his position soon fell apart.
I give the game below with some brief notes.
