Blitz Chess #381: London System

This is a blitz chess game I played as white with time control 5|0. White employs a London System, and black tries to apply queenside pressure just before white can castle. After white manages to be up 2 pawns, something pretty incredible happens that goes unnoticed until the post-mortem. 🙂

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.
