I was white and it seemed like I was going down hill the entire game. By the time I resigned it seemed as though I was at least 10 points behind.


#2

much of the game revolved around the bottom left corner imo. you gave up there too quickly.
in endgame, look at sides first. centre moves are usually less valuable.

please ask if you have questions.

Thanks for the review. By the time I started playing in the center, I knew that I was something in the neighborhood of 20 points behind even with optimum moves on the sides. So I was trying to amass more points to catch up. But there wasn’t enough there either. I.E., it was already too late but I wasn’t willing to give up yet.
