TCCL 2014, round 3

Our first non loss was a drawn match, 2-2. I managed to squeak a win in a worse position, because my opponent ran out of time. This will be a very important game for me to analyze.

I need to spend more time with KID positions with exchanges of black e-pawn for white d-pawn. I know I have have issues with dxe5, but also with ...exd4, both of which are common in the mainline variations I play. I am becoming more familiar with the problems black has to overcome, and I need to pay more attention to how to mitigate those and cause problems for white. Fortunately, there are usually a good number of games in my periodic extractions from the TWIC database.
