Squarology vs PawnTrader66

It's great to back playing chess and updating my website. I took a long break to figure some things out, not just with my personal life, but also with all things pertaining to my channel. This is the first video of my flagship series, Chess. I hope you'll learn as much I did from this encounter with the conniving Fajarowicz Variation.

Opening

At first I though we'd be going into the mainline Budapest Gambit, but instead my opponent played opted for the Fajarowicz Variation. Up a pawn, I thought that the most important thing in the position was to castle so I played a few passive moves to get my king to safety. My approach was flawed and after reviewing some opening texts, I now realize that I should've considered attacking the e4-knight more seriously.

Middlegame

Iplayed an unexpected move on move 9 that nearly flew under my radar. Thanks to some quick calculations, I saw that it couldn't be refuted tactically. I, like all players, have a deficiency in considering unexpected moves but on this specific occasion, I was up to the task. I had a tactic on move 17 that I missed because I was playing too fast, however, black's position remained uncomfortable.

Endgame

Iplayed a few mediocre moves during the game because I didn't see some interesting candidates and because I didn't calculate deeply enough.

My opponent tried his best to hold on but having played a dubious opening and given up two pawns, he never stood a chance. It was only a matter of time before black's lack of material and weak king position decided the matter.
