    Well...this game came to an abrupt end. I haven't done a post mortem, but these are the notes I was typing up following my lines of thinking during the game. One item that will be included in my post mortem is that d5 was an absolute mistake...which I missed in game.

    That may be in the cards - TomTom and I will have to chat about it. I would say it seems warranted. I feel like I was outplayed up to that point, and snatched victory by a cheapo.
