Live Blitz #87 – Some pattern recognition in action!
Really liked this one. Although it was a quickie it was almost entirely pattern recognition. From knowing e3 was bad, to knowing cxd4 weakened the diagonal to knowing …d5 was probably right to the final trick which I demonstrate in the post-mortem. So almost the whole game required nothing but some wiring in the brain from previous experience!
This is exactly what pattern recognition is all about!
