It's my first ever video article, for the simple reason that this particular game needs to be scrutinized every step of the way. I prefer writing to talking, but the screen capture format didn't really make sense.

Things start as a simple bash-fest, then veer one way, then another way, into quite an absurd finish. I didn't invent the "luck/preparation" quote, but I here exemplify it quite well.

The format is Master's Edition 4, which I was pretty good at. But this is a video article, not a text one—let's watch! (If you're in a rush, you could skip the first 3:30.)

Didn't I tell you! Wasn't that nutty! Two quick notes:

  • I did also win game 2, but in such a one-sided rout that it's unworthy of study.
  • I like defaulting to gender-neutral pronouns, and still do here half the time from force of habit, but given my opponent's screenname, "he" was likely more sensible.
