Highlighted is a Rapid game against a viewer from the livestream on 7-20-22. I played as black with the Grünfeld Defense and faced the Hungarian variation. As is typical with the Grünfeld Defense, play became sharp early. There were plenty of mistakes and blunders to learn from throughout this 50-move encounter.
