Patzer's Game 1: playing against an aggressive opponent

Mar 31, 2012, 5:29 AM |
I'm returning to chess after a gap of about 10 years.  I never was any good, but over the past couple of months my desire to improve has been pretty strong.  I recently started playing online chess (turn-based), and I thought I would record my thoughts during the games in this blog.
The following is the first game I played, earlier today.  Both my opponent and I are rather green, so there are no brilliant combinations!  But, I hope at least some people at my level will find it helpful to know how a patzer thinks during the game.
It would be great if you guys can look at my moves, and make suggestions!  Thanks for reading.
