"Slow Christmas" annotated game
I was thrilled to be able to play UnionStationFan again. He was the first person to contact me from the DHLC and offered to do a few online games with me. I lost those quickly. I was given some advice and I didn't give up! I know I still have miles and miles to go, but I wanted to at least show improvement.
Recall my goals:
1. Focus as much as possible. Feel like I'm doing my absolute best given my skill level.
2. DO NOT give the opponent an easy win. Make him work for it.
Again, I think I accomplished both. It's always disappointing to lose but I could not be that upset -- I really tried my best and I was focused almost the entire time. And again, Unionstastionfan was encouraging, kind and helpful.
