Happy new year

I went back to the chess club on Wednesday night to play some serious chess after a long absence. While away, I didn't totally ignore chess; I did a couple of tactics occasionally and spent an hour most weeks at the school chess club. This was my first effort on return.

Move 49 was the bad move in the endgame. a6 instead of b5 meant I lost the ability to control the dark squares in that critical corner of the board. Move 12 wasn't too good either.
