Here you see a typical gameflow. I played the grand prix attack (closed sicilian?) with white.
I was on the upperhand during almost 4 hours, but I just couldn't finish him off. In time trouble I made an error giving the game away.
I'm not bothered by the blunder, but why couldn't I finish him off earlier in such great position? That happens very often. Are they such great defenders at my level or do I just suck?
You can find the game here.
In disgust I hadn't have the energy to analyze it yet.
