This is my first article for the site, and I’m proud that it’s going to be a self-analysis of my highest rated Classical time control game. This game was played against Hungarian FM Roland Margl on Lichess.org with a time control of 30+0, and was quite an interesting (and tough) game. I played my favorite anti-French defense weapon in the game, 3.Bd3, and even though I got a slightly worse position after some mistakes, I think the game shows a model example of how to never give up even when you know you are worse, and how to find resources in the worst of positions. Keep in mind most of this game was positional, not tactical, meaning that there won’t be any flashy sacrifices.
