It's time for another installment of Pete's Pathetic Chess, where I subject my awful moves and chess ideas to a brilliant grandmaster and the best chess-playing computer in the world.
Joining my foolishness with his own (lucid) annotations will be GM Alex Yermolinsky, the beloved Chess.com/TV host who also ranked number five in our Valentine's Day list of 14 famous chess couples.

Also weighing in with made-up comments is a fictional personification of the real Stockfish 7, which is currently the highest-rated chess engine in history, boasting an astounding 3358 rating on the latest CCRL pure list. 
Due to overwhelming member requests, all annotations from GM Yermo, Pete, and Stockfish 7 will appear in the same game viewer for ease of review. 

Let us know what you think of my pathetic chess in the comments below and on Facebook.

The game: Chess.com live blitz, 3 minutes per side:
For a three-minute game against a much higher-rated player, I'm pretty happy with how I played. If a few dozen moves had gone the other way, I could have even won.
