Never Lose Focus

This game is a great illustration of why you should never lose focus.

I played this game against Scott Haubrich last night in the final round of the club championship.  Scott is in the midst of an incredible run having gone 7-2 in the US Open winning the Expert prize outright.

I am crushed out of the opening because I foolishly fail to play ...Qc7 which allows him tactics that get my pieces totally uncoordinated. 

Yet I then fight back to take the initiative and missed a few fighting chances.

The message?  Stay focused!
