My Game with Yaacov

This evening, I had the pleasure of participating in a Simul at the Marshall with USCF senior master Yaacov Norowitz. The game was a Dutch Stonewall, a setup I chose because I was familiar with his reserved d4 opening. I was hoping that by adopting the Stonewall, I could at least survive long enough to have an interesting game. I missed my chance to equalize with 8…Ne4, and was convincingly squashed for the rest of the game. Yaacov also missed a few opportunities to do away with me more quickly, but the solidity of his position meant he didn’t have to rush and could simply take his time winning.
