A36 Symmetrical English vs ...g6: 4.Bg2 Bg7 (1.c4 c5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.g3 g6 4.Bg2 Bg7 5.e4 e6)

Going back once again to my blitz games, this is the 32nd game in a series of 106 games that I played in 2016 against Kojjootti. After this game the score was 21.5 - 10.5 in my favor, so I had a comfortable lead in the match already at this point.
