Blitz Chess #404: Levitsky Attack

This is a game from the 2017 Autumn Marathon where I was playing with the white pieces in a Levitsky Attack. With black’s f5, the game transitions to a Dutch structure where some attention must then be given to key squares on the e-file. The structure changes some after this, with some energy next built up on the kingside, and only released when the white monarch is ready. 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.
