Cris Angel CLAWS -- until my favorite blunder....
For fun, my Art of War teammate, Strickland420, and I decided to meet up in live and have a little game. We hadn't played each other in a long time and when we played before, he always beat me quite easily.
Hehe. I got a wonderful compliment. Strickland420 said that I had improved a LOT since we last played. Woo and hoo.
This was played at a time control of 30/30. I chose this as I was a little tired; however, this proved to bite me in the behind. As per usual, I got into VERY SERIOUS time trouble. And at the end, instead of spotting my favorite tactic (which I will explain in a variation), I pulled my favorite blunder.
The nice thing was that up until that point, I was actually doing pretty well. Strickland420 said I had him on the ropes for much of this game. Let's take a look and also peek at some variations. There were a few times where I was unsure and just picked one move or another.
Stronger players, feel free to correct my thoughts or point out something I missed.
Here we go......
