This middlegame was extremely complex. Finding strategic plans was a struggle. But I guess you improve your strategic chess with games like this one.
Creating plans when there is a lot going on in a middlegame position is very hard. Especially when it’s way clearer what your opponent wants to do then what you should be aiming for. For the majority of the game, I shuffled my pieces around unnecessarily, whily my opponent made purposeful moves which made sense. Thus my advantage, later the equality I held slowly evaporated, steering the game in his direction, making the position easier for him to play, and making it even harder for me to play correctly.
I simply got destroyed in this one. Strategically outplayed by a very strong opponent. It was a great training session with an IM.
