So, since my chess metaphor in this thread backfired to the point that Caissa called my bluff and pretty much demanded I play him a real match, I moved the mail-order chess to PM only to be told, with great audacity, that I should open a publicly thread like this one for chess. I can only presume this is to move my imminent beating to a public place in order to humiliate and defame me unjustly.
In order to protect my reputation, heretofore unimpeachable and on which my entire livelihood depends, I reserve the right to unlimited mulligans and occasionally to dismantling Caissa's desk and chair to look for hidden Soviet-era spying technologies.
Anyway, here's the game so far, Caissa - Catchfire, Oct 2012. Caro Kann main line.
1. e4 c6
2. d4 d5
3. Nc3 dxe4
4. ... Bf5
