D10 Slav Defence: 3.cxd5 (without early Nf3) and 3.Nc3 (1.d4 Nf6 2.e3 d5 3.c4 c6)

D10 Slav Defence: 3.cxd5 (without early Nf3) and 3.Nc3 (1.d4 Nf6 2.e3 d5 3.c4 c6)

This game was played at Red Hot Pawn and is the last one from 2008. Well, the last game I played in that site that year anyway. This game featured many mistakes but luckily for me, my opponent made worse mistakes than I did. I have shared this game before, but not with the tactical analysis. To be honest, the most interesting thing I personally look after the analysis is done, is the precision percentages. It varies quite a lot in my games and it may be a good way to know whether or not the game was well played. According to the percentages in this game, both players had a lot of room to improve their game.
