Harrogate 4NCL Congress

I had a tough start in this last weekend’s Harrogate 4NCL Congress with a draw and then two losses against strong opponents. One thing that I’ve talked about a lot with my Dad is to never give in and fight on in the next games, regardless of what has just happened. And I managed it here by winning my last round.

I think I castled a bit early because Black’s attack with …h5 and …h4 was quite dangerous. But I kept calm and eventually got a counterattack along the c-file. The computer says I was never worse:
