161 9/19/2019 3:35:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message I have a suggestion for better learning for me.
I want to adapt an idea from Garri Kasparov's book "How life imitates chess": I want to improve my decision making.
From the next turn on, I will secretly write down the rationale, i. e. decision making process, for each card play. At the end of the turn, I will reveal this to you. Then you can not just criticize my card plays and move, but also point out flaws or omissions in my decision making process.
How does that sound to you?
You are a teacher, so you should love it ;)

Show me please
126 9/18/2019 1:37:00 PM Winter 1915 Allies Message About the deck culling:
Thanks for the hint. It was a choice for me. Either bringing in all these BR/FR/RU/IT armies or cull the deck. I decided for the former.
Or do you mean, that I should have used my last two OPs for an FR and RU attack to get rid of these two cards (Pleve and Phosgene)?
I thought about that, but the prospect of attacking entrenched Germans deterred me. Did you mean sacrificing the RUc in Kovno and the (FRc) Nancy to get rid of these cards?

About Brussels/Insterberg:
Hm, not sure about that. Historically, the Germans had Brussels, Insterberg AND Ostend.
I must admit, that I played conservatively in the West due to my recent experience with the "Western Hammer" or "The Bomb" - i. e. moving 3 GE Armies to Chateau-Thierry.
The Russians cannot really dislodge entrenched Germans from Insterberg.
Nor can the British defend Brussels against a determined German attacker (4 GE Armies, flanking from Sedan and Liege).
How should I have accomplished that?
