Round 1, Holbæk Efterår 2021 (Game Report)

Hi,Finally, I’m playing real chess again! A tournament at my local club has just started with 1 game per week over 14 weeks. The games are 90 minutes with 30-second increments from move 1 + 30 minutes added at move 40. That is a long time when I have been used to playing the online time formats.
In preparation for the game, I went early to bed the day before and I also took a 20 min. deep-rest-nap on the commute back from work since the game started at 7.15 PM and could have lasted until midnight. At the game, I actually felt rested and ready, so I will continue with this protocol onwards.
My opponent for the game was Palle Bratholm currently rated 2068 FIDE, with a peak rating of 2158. Not an easy opponent for round 1. I have recorded my thoughts on the game and uploaded it to YouTube. Enjoy:

I will do my best to make game reviews for all the games. Remember to follow my YouTube channel! Let me know what you think about the video in the comments.
Did you enjoy this issue? Yes No
