Not a perfect game by any means, but it's one I'm kind of proud of despite the Bxf3 blunder. There was a logic behind it though, but in hindsight was poor as like mentioned in the annotations his activity was restricted.
Thank you! Nice post. As a novice player, I know have a clue of which moves to avoid in the F6, G7 opening.
That's the way to roll it. You didn't make a series of opening moves "just because" - you developed carefully and made thoughtful responses to your opponent, and then when things took a more concrete shape, you possessed the critical squares and let your opponent look for ways to break you, which of course wound up breaking him.
