GilaChess vs FM Wesley So

Wesley So

Yeah no kidding. I really played against Wesley. The 12-year old kid in DATMO that just missed a GM norm and had to settle for an IM norm. I even missed a “winning move” in this game !

Anyway, I lost. (no surprise there)

This game was played on on April 2006. You’d see I played aimlessly as I did not have an opening to answer the Caro Kann at that time and the game was played under the bullet (1 minute) time control. See if you can spot the winning move I missed at around move 30 something.

Of course, this game can be taken with a grain of salt because it’s only bullet :)
