188 7/24/2020 5:03:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message About the tournament : I don't understand why 4-0 players are not rewarded in some way (the more obvious and absolutely easy being facing a 3-1 opponent, notwithstanding with the enjoyment to play with you James).
187 7/24/2020 4:58:00 AM Spring 1862 Union Message Thanks for the lesson James. Perfect flows and choices.
I already saw you implementing this Pittsburgh pattern many times, but I still couldn't find how to parry.

I thought I could be Nadal, but I'm only Gal Monfils ;-)...It seems I have to work on it again.

I'd like to talk strategy with you by email if you don't mind.
