Game at move 11:

If I were white: Sacrifice the useless a2 knight in a tradeoff in an attempt to activate the queen

If I were black: Still a lot of development to do. Too much of the sidelines was opened and not enough of the centre.


Disclaimer: I just ate, so my chess is not at its best level. This is based off quick judgments.

No actually, both sides made severe blunders throughout the game

Casual game anyone? A bit high and just going to procrastinate for a bit before getting back to maths.

I'm going to refrain from playing quick games since I don't feel any improvement from moving as a result of impulse and minimal computation

Yep. Quick games are purely to test speed and usually result in catastrophe unless you're already pretty amazing.

I realised that on one of the moves I virtually trapped my knight...I had one safe square but it was a bad safe square so I didn't even go there

I think that's underselling blitz players to say that quick games are purely to test speed lol, there is still massive depth in tactics and strategy. But yes, you would most likely get bad habits and look at positions more superficially if you tried to learn the game only through playing blitz.
