Options 1) if you can get hold of some of his games, have a look at them and see if you can prepare some opening theory on your part.

2) Ideally, based upon 1 above, consider what types of positions your openings offer you at critical points. Consider apects like two bishops, fixed pawn structures and the like.

3) ideally, based on 1 & 2 above, consider end-game techniques to better your understanding of the positions types your opening preparation may lead to.

4) get a good night sleep and wake up fresh and ready for a great time!

Like if you were playing furryfunbundle you should know that he is a mad attacker! ;-) He rolls his pawn like hell, loves to sacrifice pawns all the time, and couldn't care less for his own king safety, so long as the opponents king also comes out in danger! Also, he loves playing in very open positions.. But yeah, knowing all this also might not help since you should also know that furryfunbundle always wins too!!!

Can you find or surmise A position he won't "Like" sylystically or any reason, even from your past games?

Many people err when discomforted. Tho an Expert, he's been there before.

If you have a game where you almost got him. And can add a slight improvement?
