Chess Blog Challenge #1 - Annotate This!

I think it's fun to share the games people send me. Annotating chess games (looking for mistakes, awesome play, etc) is very beneficial to overall chess improvement. If you have a game you would like posted on the chess blog for people to look at and possibly annotate, feel free to email them to me and I will post them here.

If you're up to helping the people that send these in, post your annotations in the comment section.
