Great game GMR. I wanted to quit early when you got my Rook.
that's why you should never give up when playing me - there's always the possibility that i'm going to do something dumb that almost gives the game away
like i did twice with you (i was like "i'm pretty sure i'm winning, so why am I running away from his attacks like i'm trying to keep my lunch money?")

It was definitely a learning game for me. I did manage to slow down some but I set up to take your Queen and then when I switched back to the game I forgot what I was doing and moved knight up to begin assaulting king instead of just taking Queen and getting into one of our marathon games lol.

my queen was very happy that i did not just give her away as is my want
but her just sitting there outside of your castle under the tent, fanning herself while thumping through a magazine was weird - kept thinking that i should use her, but it was never the correct play

It really makes me appreciate those that can carry on multiple games like the tradition of putting prodigies up against a room full of boards. At that level, you are not just trying to remember 10 strategies but it’s however many stratagies, multiple moves ahead. It’s unreal.

i can’t even carry strategy over to one other game and through a couple of needy coworkers (IRL)
