601 3/24/2017 3:43:00 PM Summer 1917 Allies Message Thanks Tony - good game!

You had me worried about losing Italy with the strong push of 3 GE armies there. If the Austrians weren't already beat up, a couple of their armies may have been enough to take it out.
If you retreat from the original GE line, you should have stopped at Mannheim instead of Stuttgart - it keeps the AP from hitting any one spot with more than one stack. My units in Mannheim almost ensured that I'd eventually wear down Frankfurt. Consider SR'ing full Austrian armies to the west front in order to spread out the losses.
I was hopeful early that I could take out Austria, but you did a good job of trading space for time and not rushing forward to refill the line. Trenching Budapest was key - although not sure I'd go for the T2, as Brusilov Offensive could cause you to get knocked back with an AP advance into T1. But I never was able to get enough to Budapest, so didn't matter.
You looked likely to finish taking Russia out, but my next plan (assuming I would eventually force Frankfurt) was to load up the Balkans with BR corps (SR Calais to Salonika) and push on Constantinople. I figured it would turn into an attrition battle which the Turks can't afford long term. The Serbs, Greeks and Italians would have been content to keep the Austrians at the Nis bottleneck.
Anyways, enjoyed the game; sorry you had the unfortunate luck to get paired up with GMs for both your tournament matches. Let me know if you're ever interested in a for-fun rematch.

Best regards,

Michael

Your map is correct. Obviously Central Power morale is low due to war weariness.The AP has prevailed!!!
598 3/21/2017 8:52:00 AM Summer 1917 Allies Message Msg 556 shows GE6 in Stuttgart (prior msgs show it moved there from Trent).

Msg 576 had a 7-loss which you indicated GE6 reducing, but I took as GE10 replaced by [GEc] (figured a typo on army number). Odds on that attack were 12 vs 12, consistent with 2 GE armies there.

Last attack on Frankfurt was 12 vs 9, which is consistent with the remaining GE3 and [GEc]. There has been no other movement/reinforcement of Frankfurt, so all that I show left there is [GE3].

Last turn your AH RB was (5,3) - msg 523. You didn't use all your AH RPs this turn - only 1 AH RP used for AH7 Nis (assuming no corps there).
