He didn't allow that - did he??

My opponent played the Colle System (I think?) but got next to no advantage out of the opening.

I capitalised by going on a sortee behind enemy lines with 'Her Royal Highness!' and got the gas cooking. My opponent did not find the right defense and I won a piece!! This sealed the win ...

As usual, any comments welcome ...

"I missed a pin and lost the win!"

Here I got into a Closed Sicilian and managed to squeeze my opponent. I got an early e5 in and deprived my opponent's Knight of d5, which should have proved decisive.

Unfortunately I missed a crucial pin during the same coloured Bishop ending, which allowed my opponent to hold onto to the draw ... ANNOYING
