Blitz Chess #380: King’s Indian Defense w/ 3. Bf4 setup

This is a blitz chess game I played as white with time control 3|0. Black opted for a King’s Indian setup whereas white went for a Bf4 based setup. Sometimes the middlegame could turn into a race if black pushes e4, at which point white would play on the queenside and black the kingside. Play however first begins on the queenside for both since an open c-file was present, then it shifted to the queenside, and well in the end the whole board is made use of. The white queen runs a marathon, a frantic ending ensues, and somehow Lionel Messi shows up out of nowhere.

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
