C50 Hungarian Defence and Giuoco Pianissimo (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Bc4 Be7 5.c3 d6 6.cxd4 Nf6 7.Nc3)

This was played in a team match called TMCL 2016 Sub-Div. WL1 R3. It was played between Battle For Victory and TribaL KnighTs on 100 boards. I played on board 52 for Battle For Victory and won both my games on time. We were able to win the match with a score of 142 - 58. The only critical position in this game came after my 9th move Re8. In that position Zalan10 played 10.e5, which started the downhill from which my opponent could not recover from.

The most accurate move in reply would have been 10...Bxf3, according to the engine at depth 30. Both the game continuation and the move suggested wins a pawn, but the game continuation resulted in more exchanges than the move 10...Bxf3 would have. Zalan10's 16th move Rc1 was the final nail in the coffin and the game ended quickly after that.
