Picked Up a 'W'
Had a good match with my friend the other day. Taking a lot of time going through all the opening strategies on here (or at least some of them) really has opened my eyes as to how the game is played. Although I do believe I had to change my mind at least once that I recall and I made one really brutally bad mistake toward the end it was nice to achieve a 'mate'.
What's really nice is the feeling that I'll be able to give my friend a good match now rather than fumble my way thru games.
