Rapid Time #10: The “New” Best Game I Ever Played

This game should have been a 20 minute rapid game but ended up being more of a Blitz game, instead of the allotted 20 minutes it was over in about 6 and a half minutes. Many of the moves were straight forward after an early tactical opportunity where I was able to win a pawn and threaten the White Queen and a Knight fork simultaneously. It wasn’t an easy defense and White missed the most accurate move to stop a total collapse of the position. This is position is also a good example of clearing the c file with the c5 push and putting a Rook on the open file before White has time to react, this is common in both the Caro-Khann and Indian defenses I play. The opponent was a 1579 which is one of the highest rapid wins I have to date.
