Blitz Chess #403: Dutch Defense

This is a game from the 2017 Autumn Marathon where I was playing with the white pieces in Dutch Defense. The difference between two squares on the e-file in this game have great implications. The quality of the minor pieces is influenced by just one hole in the black camp. The time control was 3 minutes with a 2-second increment.

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.
