Computer Chronicles II

Hello, again, to the two or three people that have actually read my original blog post.  For any newcomers (which very well may be all of you) this blog is about my escapades in playing chess against computers.  For the time being, it's more specifically regarding games played on a friends phone because I'm a relatively low-level player.  I've definitely been improving with the help of both Chess.com as well as a new book for me: Chess Fundamentals by Jose Capablanca, Completely Revised and Updated by Nick de Firmian, 3-time U.S. Chess Champion and author of Modern Chess Openings.  This is evidenced by a game I played against my friends phone last night, and for joy for joy, no blunders!!  Not on my part, anyway.  I was particularly pleased that I could find a checkmate (or that one would present itself to me) on the 18th move!!!  Even against a computer/phone set to "easy" I consider this an accomplishment.  Better yet, I was playing as Black in this scenario =]

So, without further ado, I give you the game, with some notes of mine -- my own opinions on the position as well as computer analysis by Fruit2.3.  I hope you enjoy it.



Once again, comments are very welcome!  I'd love to find out what you think =]
