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.
