Testing Out the Semi-Slav | Training Game

A training game against a patron in the Semi Slav Defense.

From now on I’ll be recording training games as often as I can. I have two measurable goals in my training weeks to come. Aside from working on the endgame, strategy, and a new repertoire, I have set a goal of reaching 2300 in lichess tactics (goal complete!) and 2100 in lichess classical.

Here is today’s game:

1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nf3 Nf6 4. Nc3 e6 5. e3 Nbd7 6. Qc2 b6 7. Bd3 Bb7 8. cxd5 exd5 9. O-O Be7 10. b3 O-O 11. Bb2 Rc8 12. a4 c5 13. e4 cxd4 14. exd5 dxc3 15. Bxc3 Nxd5 16. Bc4 Nxc3 17. Qxc3 Bf6 18. Nd4 Nc5 19. Rad1 Qc7 20. f3 Rfd8 21. Bxf7+ Qxf7 22. b4 Nxa4 23. Qe3 Rc3 24. Qf2 Qd5 25. Kh1 Bxd4 26. Qh4 Bf6 27. Rxd5 Bxh4 28. Re5 Nb2 29. g3 Rxf3 30. Rxf3 Bxf3+ 31. Kg1 Rd1+ 0-1
