King Protection Is Important.....

I was destroyed in this game. I played a weak variation of my irregular opening that I haven't quite mastered. At first it really throws off my opponents because they aren't use to seeing something like it. Somewhere along the way I went off track. I think this was just a much more skilled player. He set up the perfect play that I failed to see. The biggest lesson I learned here was protection of the king. I failed to properly have a secure defense and it cost me my queen. After looking at the game more closely I didn't develop my pieces at all. My knights served no purpose the entire game. This opening needs to be tossed or it needs to be finely tuned.
