Made bottom board for our club in the county cup comp.
Felt I needed to play for win to help team, so I tried to play a bit more open than usual.
Another Russian system in Gruenfeld.
Theory seems to not rate 9.Be3 saying 11..Nd4 better.
I need to decide what to do vs 7..Nc6 with 4.Qb3 move order.
I was sure I'd seen gxf3 as opposed to Bxf3 but decided for myself that if Bxf3 then a later ..f5 might undermine the pawn centre. I went for gxf3 to strengthen centre and hopefully be able to play more aggressively.
me (172) vs opponent (150)
