I think my opponent was trying a slightly tricky opening, but it allowed for me to develop my pieces into a more formidable structure. His pieces tended to be more scattered and isolated. By move 23 he was still hanging in there, but then his Qh6 move proved fatal. His ranking is lower than mine (which doesn’t always mean a lot) so I was ‘predicted’ to win, but I’m just glad to get a win.
