My chess stlye

I just realized this week what my true chess "Style" is.  Openings are pretty book.

Middle game I build up a material, positional or both advantage.

End Game is marked by a blunder that makes the wheels fall off & then I resign.

I played 3 of the best chess games of my life this week.  All against stronger opponents.  I had clearly won positions & bothced the whole thing up.  Doh!

I wonder if Tartakower watched me play at Books-A-Hundred.
