Lost On Time!
So I outplayed a player way beyond my rank and I lost because I ran out of time. Around move 49 I spent a lot of time thinking about what I was going to do. I spent way too much time. We were talking during the game and I was explaining that my end game is the weak part of my game. That's the reason I took so long making some important decisions. They turned out to be the better decisions but I spent too much time contemplating them. I could learn a lot from this game. The two games before this I lost both. I went ahead by a piece in both and they still managed to get a check-mate. My defense has been lacking. I do a great job in this game though. At least I think.
