The Hopeful Beginning of a Habit

As part of my chess improvement goals, I've decided to try to analyze my games in a deep and thoughtful way, something I've struggle to do ever since I started playing the game.  From what little I know about myself, I've learned that if I can be held accountable to others, I'm far more likely to get stuff done.  So I'm going to start posting my analyzed games on here to help boost my motivation as well as get your comments so I can work on my analysis and evaluation skills.  Please do post any comment or criticisms that you have.

The game below is a recently completed one that had with a long-time friend here on  It was a well-fought and interesting one and has become one of my favorites from the twenty or so games we've played together.
