To anyone reading this, welcome to my first Chess.com blog entry!

Let me start with a short introduction of myself. I am a 22 year-old living in Hamilton, Canada, and I just recently graduated from University in May with a Mathematics Degree. I have played chess for over 15 years, taking it seriously for the last two or three.

I have decided to start up a blog where I annotate games from myself and others, as part of my path to improvement. Given that this was inspired in part by the great work of Dr_Chris_Angel, and since I happened to stumble upon a game of hers this morning, I will be starting this journey by annotating a game she played.

This game was played during a Dan Heisman Learning Centre event, using the standard Slow Chess rules (45|45, played in the Chess.com Live Chess server). Comments will be posted in the game. Be sure to manually click through the variations, or the player will play through the main line and you will miss several possible alternatives!
