This player was well beyond my rank. I'm not even a true 1158. I spent too much time contemplating a few of my moves. When the game ended in a draw I only had 40 seconds left to his 13 minutes. I'm not sure if he noticed that because he provoked a draw. I began this game right after watching the movie "Searching For Bobby Fischer." I felt like it was my duty to play well and I did. I want to start getting more serious about chess. This is a little piece of motivation for me. There was a pawn I wanted to take in this game but I wasn't sure if it was the right move. g3 was the move I made. I wanted to protect his queen from coming in.
