In my last two correspondence tournament sections I’ve managed to get one losing position through carelessness in both of them. After thoroughly analyzing both games where I had equal positions, I went on the site and played my move then confirmed it. When I got my opponent’s reply is when I realized I had played a move from a sideline and not the main line…the result in both cases were blunders; one lost my Queen and the other took me from equality in a position on the Black side of a Ruy Lopez, Marshall Counterattack to a position where I have little, if any, chances. I will hang in there and hope he misplays the Q-R and P ending…anything can happen (I hope). I am thoroughly disgusted with myself...feel free to hurl insults at my stupidity!
