My victory against a grandmaster from Portugal.

A tough game, where I was defending for a while. I had a nice advantage, actually, I believe for a good portion of the game, once my opponent decided to capture the pawn on c4. But things sort of went a little awry due to time pressure. This is, after all, a 3 minute game. Full of errors. Which is what you must expect. However, overall, I am pretty satisfied with this win.

Part 2 of my video series on playing the Caro Kann.

My draw against a grandmaster. This video should provide some insight on how to handle the black pieces in the #CaroKanndefense, particularly when coming under a fierce kingside attack.

There were chances for both sides. I feel white may have overlooked a critical opportunity to play for a win when he had a chance to send a rook to my 7th rank, creating real pressure on my queenside pawns. However, overall, I was satisfied with my play. Though I am sure this game deserves to be analyzed to determine the best course for both sides.
