Learn from E's mistakes (Prt.1)

As far as i know, it is very rare that people show off games they lost due to blunders/mistakes they made. Hey, i do ;-)
And why shouldn't you? The blunders/mistakes are usually painfull enough to not want to be reminded of ever again. But the fact that blunders/mistakes can be instructional made me come up with the idea to start a series of posts dedicated to them, called "Learn from E's mistakes". To kick off with a
recent blunder which will show you that leaving your King exposed, might come back to haunt you. It also goes to show you, that i can play just as bad as i can play good (whatever that means). The game is annotated for your enjoyment.

Nice Edwin! Not the blunder ofcourse, but the way you are trying to learn from the mistakes. I do the same when I make this kind of mistakes.

Haha! I'm not sure if i ever learn. After which i would like to quote the guy from that chess video on your blog (be it somewhat edited); "Maybe after 10 years of playing i'll start showing some promise".

It is from my blunder games that I learn the most from. And, why not post them, if a chess blogger is going to spend the time critiquing his/her own game, they should publish it.

dear edwin 'dutchDefence meyer'. inevitably i will have to read your stuff--its just too good to not read or look at. i found you here this morning off of comments from tempo or blue devil--even before you wrote me so its definite synergy.

surely the gods ask me to know your work.

and i thank you... im just in from work, where i met about 200 or more people today, so need to sit quietly with ct-art and restore my soul first.

thank you for the acknowledgment and more in future, i am sure, please both ways.

best regards, david
