Of course I haven't posted anything because of indifference and such things. I've survived another year full of awful valleys of blunders. Throughout I did think some more about chess in general, my own strengths, weaknesses, reasons for my wins and ineptitudes and such and wrote little bits and pieces about my findings. But, as you know, it is not allowed to discuss a work in progress, so I will leave it at that.
This game I played the other day is pleasant enough to share, and the surprise finish should make you smile (I'm smiling about it anyway):

Is that all, you might ask, and the answer is yes.
