Boris Izrayelit v. Michael Hehir – Marshall Grand Prix Action.

Thursday night at the Marshall Action Grand Prix, Boris picked up a nice win over Michael Hehir, and is now 1702. With the race to 2000 neck and neck (I’m 1729) It’s clear that I will need to start playing more if I’m not going to get passed standing still.

In the game, Hehir sac’s an exchange after which my engine shows the position as equal. Later in the game at the key moment, Boris finds the right tactical ideas to punish his opponent for the blunder 31…f4, when he should have gone for a repetition.
