Story of this game: White advances in the center too soon, then fails to protect or trade the overextended pawn. Black then allows white to take on b7 and complicate the position, when he should be finishing development. He then actively assists in his own destruction by walking his N into a pin, trading off his important dark-square Bishop, and failing to castle.
