21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1901: I get to redeem myself as France after making several ugly mistakes in that last game! Good luck!
21 Mar 17 UTC Spring, 1901: Moderator: (captainmeme): You're good to go - this one doesn't need pausing or country rearranging :)
29 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: That was the game, I think. I've not had time to get my head in this one; sorry for the delays but I have been at work for most of the last two weeks on deadline. Just not focused on this at all.
29 Mar 17 UTC Autumn, 1903: I'm in a good position, but it's too early to call the game yet.
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: This game came at a very bad time for me. You've been a great opponent; I am sorry that this game has been so bad , and so slow. Still kicking myself for blowing a draw a France before, and just embarrassed by this game. I will try to speed this toward the finish tonight or tomorrow. Almost finished with my work deadline.
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Ok, thanks!
04 Apr 17 UTC Autumn, 1905: Don't beat yourself too hard about not moving to Boh in the other game. Your move was the correct countermove to the one I had saved most of that phase.
05 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1906: Had I moved BUR to BEL in Autumn 1903 in this game, I think I would have been in position to force a draw. However, the Austria strategy you selected - even knowing you would - presents an extremely difficult challenge for France. Prior to getting the 50/50 wrong at BEL, I executed without error, and I still think it would have been at best a draw ... and even that I'm not so sure.
I did not play 1v1 prior to this tournament, so I am sure I am missing a number of strategies that might be more effective: i.e. French opening X works well against Austrian opening Y. I will have plenty of time to study 1v1 strategy before the next tournament!
Now, go win this thing so I can at least say I lost to the winner ...
05 Apr 17 UTC Spring, 1906: And don't worry too much about your orders. I'm just throwing them in right now. This game is over.
05 Apr 17 UTC You're still in it, you have to lose two sets before you're out. We might meet again in the final!
05 Apr 17 UTC I think bouncing me in Boh or Tyl in Spring 1903 is what I would have done different. A lot of these games are decided on one lucky guess at the right time.
05 Apr 17 UTC I owe you at least one more good game! Good luck.
