EYD June 4th Round

I won my June 4th round game in EYD.  I made a mistake in the beginning, which gave White a clear advantage.  But then my opponent made a big mistake and the game turned in my favor.  I was able to hold on to that lead.  Here it is, with variations and comments from In-seong:

I lost my 3rd round game, which I played after my 4th round game, but In-seong hasn't done the review of that one yet.  I'll post the game after I get the review.

We only have one game left in the June session.  This last round will determine whether I stay in B League or move back down to C League for the July session.  I think my opponent will be tough to beat.

Meanwhile, Walther and I continued the dan level class last Thursday (that's right, just me and Walther again), studying the first of the incredible run of Nie Weiping's supermatch games and also a recent crazy Ke Jie game.  I really like this format of memorizing and preparing an old classic game and then studying a new game that Walther brings.  Memorizing pro games is a really good way to learn and those classic games have a lot in them that is applicable to our own games.  But then we play "guess the next move" with the new games that I haven't seen before, which is a lot of fun.  It's gratifying when I can get the moves right and really wonderful when they play moves I never would have considered.
