Game of the Week #390

In the past weekend I played second Bundesliga in Berlin with my Hamburg team HSK 2, and in fact we lost both matches. Especially on Sunday, it was a very tense affair, and we missed several good opportunities to score more with the team. Personally, I drew my game against Dawid Janaszak and the missed chances kept going through my mind in the past days. Instructive stuff, I believe, and we'll discuss it tonight.

The live show is free to watch, and available on-demand for ChessBase Premium accounts.
