Slow Swiss #6 - Round 1 game with JRTK73

Alrighty.  Here we go.   Statistically speaking, it's a bit unrealistic to think I'll win so all I can do here is concentrate on the principles that I've learned and try to at least give the opponent a challenge to win.  I think I did that although I did not feel as focused as perhaps I might have been.  I was a bit tired.  Nevertheless, I took my time and didn't rush.  I don't always see things though.  Let's look to see how the game went, eh? 

Worth noting, when I noticed I was in trouble, I began to get as excited about looking for checkmate (against me) as my opponent would possibly be.  I thought I saw a few - but they weren't mate.  I also offered to resign since I knew I was in deep doo-doo but JRTK73 encouraged me to play it out and make him go all the way.
