    Game is now annotated. Of note is:

    • Black's 6th move should have been to simply continue fianchettoing his Bishop, instead playing ...e6 setting in motion intense pain for Black for the rest of the game
    • White's 8th move restricts his Bishop
    • White's 15th move helps Black defend his backward pawn
    • Black's 30th move is an amazing blunder, setting motion a great attack by White which has both sides making blunders

    Of course the side who makes the penultimate blunder wins...

    I'll be posting my analysis sometime this week.

    Sure that is how the game ended. However, I am doing analysis of this and round one thru four of Quad 28 to see how I am playing. In this game I allowed you to get tremendous pressure on me for most of the game. I need to figure out how that happened. Personally I think you blundered only because of a radical shift in gears of the game at the end. The game went from cramped to open, and perhaps that was just enough to incite a tactical blindsight...
