Queenless Middlegame | Modern Defense – Blitz Chess #413

It’s an early queen exchange out of a Modern Defense. With the kingside symmetrical, much of the focus shifted to the queenside where imbalances within the pawn structure would surface. This was a 5|0 time control game from lichess.org’s 24-hour Summer Marathon tournament which began on July 5th, 2019. I was playing with the black pieces.

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.
