Good game!
You are really good at protecting your pieces! For a majority of the game I felt like I couldn't get through your defenses. You really had me on the ropes with 18.d4. I think my en passant capture in 17 was probably a mistake. You capitalized on it well.
I'm not sure what the point of 35.Re1 was, though (the rook trade)? I was up on pieces at that point, and one-for-one trades only work to my advantage at that point. Also, probably e4 and d4 are stronger moves than e5 and d5 in moves 1 and 2.
I could see you angling for a stalemate towards the end, though. There was a point that I thought you might pull it off, too!
Thanks for the game!--SeanC (talk) 17:33, 1 November 2017 (JST)

Yeah, I enjoyed that game. Thank you! It had been well over 10 years since I played. I don't think I ever had you on the ropes though. And the en passant was a big miss on my part. I have lots to learn. Also, it was interesting pondering each move much more than what's possible when playing face to face. owencunn (talk) 21:07, 2 November 2017 (JST)
Don't worry too much about proper notation; I'm glad to fix any mistakes!--SeanC (talk) 11:48, 12 September 2017 (JST)

When marking pawn captures, list just the file that the pawn originated on, so "axb4" means "pawn on the A file takes b4."--SeanC (talk) 15:36, 26 October 2017 (JST)
