This is the first time I've ever seriously tried to analyze a game. So, please don't be too caustic in your refutation of what my weak attempts. But, I do like feedback! I would love to learn from your experience.
This is a game that I feel I should have won, but, predictably, I lost it. I hope that something about this is instructive for you, just as it was for me. I have at least tried to be entertaining.
(The picture connected with this post has nothing to do with its content. That's my fiance, and I figure that more people will read a blog post with a picture of a cute girl than a post with a picture of frumpy me.)
