A39 English Opening: Symmetrical Variation. Mecking Variation

A39 English Opening: Symmetrical Variation. Mecking Variation

Another day, another opening variation to share with the world. This game I went through with Stockfish today and went on all the major advantage changes 25 or more moves deep. I also did some chess video experimentations today so that maybe in the future I could get also a youtube channel, where I would post videos were I would commentate the games while I play and usually quite badly ;-) Maybe those fun times will be on the near future... If or when that happens I will post here the necessary details to let you know how you can find me on youtube. Analysis updated January 27th 2015.

This second game was played in a team match called we love chess and fun. It was played between F&R and Life Is Chess. I played board two for the latter and I think our team changed its name during the match. It was before we love chess and fun. If I recall correctly that is. This match was played on five boards and ended in a draw 5 - 5. I won both my games in the match. On boards 3 and 4 we lost 2-0 due to timeouts.

Game number three. This is the 23rd game in the 100 game match that me and Tomi are playing against each other. With this win I finally tied the match. The score was 11.5 - 11.5 after this game.

Game number four. This is the 25th game in the 100 game match between me and my friend. Tomi was able to tie the match with the win he was able to get in the game below. After this loss of mine, the score was 12.5 - 12.5.

Game number five. This is the 27th game in the 100 game match that me and a friend of mine are playing. After this draw, the score in the match was 13 - 14 in favor of my friend.

Game number six. This is the 31st game in the 100 game match between these two players. Even after this many games the match was still going quite evenly and after this game the score was 16 - 15 in my favor. At this point it seemed that there will be no clear winner for this match.

Game number seven. The game below is the 41st game in the 100 game match that is played with 15 minute time controls between these two players. This variation has become quite drawish in this match, so I will maybe only play it from time to time when I need to take a break from losing if that starts to happen in an alarming pace. After this game the score in the match was 24 - 17.
