Lessons learned:

  • A plan is only as good as its execution; my hunt for the a5 pawn could've probably be conducted in a much calmer and more solid manner.  Instead, in my haste I lost a rook and pawn that I didn't need to lose.
  • It's important to find which moves your opponent can play that'll cause you the most pain and find ways to counter-act them.
  • Don't lose confidence because you made a mistake!
  • It doesn't matter if you play the right moves over the board, as long as you take the time later to examine the game and come up with alternatives.
