I tried the cute programviewer that DG has found. But it messed up my blog. Besides that it didn't interpret my pgn well and it showed no comments. I was plain lucky I could restore my blog! It's a pity because it looked very nice. So I'm back with chesslog.de
I don't know whether this game is interesting for you but it makes it very evident where my problems lie.
You find the game here.
Until move 12 things went pretty equal. But then I didn't know how to proceed.
My usual solution in this kind of quiet positions is to start thinking until I'm in time trouble. Without finding a satisfactory move.
Now I'm alert at time trouble, so I played a move that opened the position for my bishops, conform the advice of DLM (little plan: improve piece mobility).
But that turned out to be no solution either.
I can train tactics until the cows come home, but that will not help me here.
So what must I train to help me in this kind of positions?
