This is indeed interesting game. I feel that Alleis are often played too passively in the early game, but certainly not here. Interesting back-and-forth.

I enjoy this game very much. It is a very high attrition game with pressure on every front. I have no idea how this will continue/end. But whoever wins, it will have been fun and a learning experience for me.
