Day 9 - Good Day!

Today I played two games against Sunny. I beat him easily in the first game, and was winning the second game and (almost) had mate next move. I saw the pattern, but I didn't pay attention to his move, a fatal mistake. His move attacked my queen, which I lost on the next turn. It just goes to show how slowing down and double-checking is vital to winning a majority of games. Overall, it was a good day. I was only able to do 5 problems from "303 Tricky Checkmates."
