The attack White attempted to play against me is stuff you learn when you first begin to play. It had been a while since I had to defend against the opening but it’s something you never forget as one mistake can mean checkmate. However, once you know how to defend the position you end up with a much better game than White does. Demonstrated in this game White’s attack fails and loses its gusto, simultaneously I attack the White King and White must then shift their pieces to defend. With no long term plan but an early checkmate that failed, White ends up in a position where the King is stripped of the pawn shield and two Rooks are bearing down along open files with no defenses in sight.
