On one hand, I did not feel very good having to frantically memorize all the variations just before the start of the round, but on the other, I felt good that I had already done the hard work - this was just about not letting that go to waste. Besides, I believe that there is too much to remember - Anish Giri once said that of all the variations he has in his repertoire, he only has "about five percent" of that in his memory at any one time.} 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 3. d5 e6 4.

Also, this was my first ever classical game in the Benoni, so I was nervous because I was not sure if I understood the general ideas well enough to get a result out of this game.} 10.
