Match 3(6) vs Blkmagic

Here is the latest game in our match series. I will add comments in a day or two.

  1. Good job spotting 11...Qa5+ and then converting the win! In the opening, I wonder why you played 5...d6 and then 7...d5? It seems like you can play 5...d5 in one go and save a tempi (6.exd5 Nf6). But maybe these are book lines you know and there's a reason for it.

  2. I based 5...d6 7...d5 on my key strategy: being stupid. OTB I assumed I needed a pawn on d5 to keep white from advancing his pawn.
