29 Nov 19 UTC GG everybody.

France, can I ask why you didn't help me try to eliminate E in the last few yyears it was possible?
29 Nov 19 UTC Well played.
29 Nov 19 UTC Sigh...good game, I wanted to sprint for Spain, but it was never an option.
29 Nov 19 UTC gg, I appreciate being included in the draw, Sam :)
29 Nov 19 UTC Really surprised that someone like Hamilton Brian would CD
29 Nov 19 UTC I'll play another 100pt buyin if people are down!
29 Nov 19 UTC GG everyone! Turkey, I was actually surprised you didn’t try for GOL and subsequent SCs but I appreciate the Draw.

England and Germany, thanks for joining in the defense to stop the solo!

Italy, sorry to eliminate you but I thought that was the SC holding up the Draw.
29 Nov 19 UTC I’m game for a rematch if someone wants to put it together.
29 Nov 19 UTC Good game, Turkey. Back in 1903, I considered covering Trieste against a potential Italian stab. But I thought "no,Italy won't stab; in a game of this level, it'll be too obvious that an Italian-Austrian war will do nothing but give Turkey a solid solo chance." Not much comfort in being half-right...
29 Nov 19 UTC Germany, there was never a point where going after England made good sense in my opinion. We were all jockeying for position while Turkey continued to grow. At first i needed to defend against you and then reverse course to defend against the Turkey solo.
29 Nov 19 UTC The stab came in the context of a collapsing Russia who appeared to be fighting Turkey, I don't think it was an insane stab.
29 Nov 19 UTC The AI alliance is one of the strongest in the board when they stick together.
29 Nov 19 UTC In fact in Spring 1905, shortly after the stab, Italy had the best position in the game IMO
29 Nov 19 UTC France, why not turn against England in 1906 when our border was sealed up and I was committed entirely to fighting him?
29 Nov 19 UTC Thanks. I thought I was doing ok. I’m not sure where it fell apart. Right around then I started a new job and stopped paying as close attention.
29 Nov 19 UTC Nah, as soon as Italy entered Trieste I knew I had a shot at winning it.
29 Nov 19 UTC My rule of thumb is that T should lose a home center before A or I stab. In this game, I was already in Greece when Italy stabbed. Jackpot for me.
