My best win!

Below is a game I played in the OSU chess club correspondence tournament against Issam Rifai. I am excited to share it because Issam is a much better chess player than me! Winning this game was electrifying & I consider it my best win ever!

I have some confessions though: 1) I'm sure I spent way more time than Issam did analyzing each move, so I had a time advantage. 2) Issam was playing a lot of consecutive games (~30) whereas I was only playing ~7. Once again I had a time advantage.

OK, so here's the game! I tried to remember what I was thinking throughout the game & added it as a running commentary.
