They say one ought to spend some time analyzing their own games, which I almost never do; so I figured it is a good time to start, as I am in need and want of improving my game.  Feel free to chime in with ideas, thoughts, and opinions. My amateur status will quickly become evident.

This is a game I recently played in Live Chess, with a time control of 20|0.  It features the Philidor Defense (C41), quickly exchanged pieces and an interesting ending.

So there you have it.  (He resigned at move 54, but I put the extra moves in to show the inevitability, though I meant to put them in parenthesis.)  I'm sure that my analysis will get better with time.  Until then, leave a comment to help me out.
