I just finished playing a game against a 17k, and lost by a fair margin. During most of the opening I felt I was doing OK, and have written up a review myself of mistakes I think I made. I didn’t play out a lot of variations, just tried to highlight for later reference (for myself) where I made the largest mistakes that I noticed.
I’d appreciate any tips, suggestions on things to practice, and any corrections to incorrect thinking/assumptions. Specifically tips on the opening would be great, as I felt like it was going fine at the time, but afterwards I felt white had a much better position than me heading into the midgame.
The game is here
Thanks in advance!
