Dug A Hole, Then Escaped

Apr 23, 2009, 9:18 AM 2

I know that a game can be lost quickly with a few missteps during the opening.  In this game I thought I would stop something from happening and then realized I had dug a hole.  I wanted to resign but can't bring myself to quit.  Plus, I know mistakes could be made by opponent that I could take advantage of so I decide that since I threw myself in the slammer, I have to pick the lock.  I'm not going to learn anything by quitting.  I appreciate constructive criticism from higher ranked players regarding weaknesses and strengths in my game.  I've annotated the game so that you can see my thinking.  Thanks.
