Jim Stitzel vs Richard F.

This game is a good example of what happens when you forget the “four principles”:http://shamuswrites.com/2008/08/20/lessons-in-playing-better-chess/ I laid out the other day. In this case, I became so focused on cornering his Queen and removing it from the board with minimal loss to myself that I neglected to notice just how much a threat that piece was. I _did_ start to get nervous about the encounter the longer it dragged on, but apparently I wasn’t nervous enough to check the board thoroughly for vulnerabilities, and it cost me the game.

Have anything to add to the conversation?
