A few comments about this game. Move 15. Silver to 78 must be played here. When a bishop exchange is possible, the correct way is to capture back with the silver not with the knight. (Advancing knight too early is usually a mistake) Move 25. Pawn must be captured here. Move 41. Better to play an active move like Bishop drop to 75 attacking the knight and threatening promotion at 53. The bishop on 87 is out of play, so there is no big need to capture it. Move 45. As a rule of thumb, try to drop bishops (and rooks) on opponent area, in order to promote them asap. Move 51. Again, better lose on bishop, than having two bad bishops. Seek active play for long ranged pieces, even if you lose some material. Move 55. Inaccurate silver drop, the opponent can get material anyway. Better to play pawn to 56 and try to promote the bishop on 13 and seek counter-play. Move 57. The lance of the castling should usually be kept for defense. Better drop a pawn to 14 and promote it next move. Move 59. Bad pawn drop, huge problem if a lance is dropped on 15, because a pawn drop to block it is not available anymore. (Remember the 2 pawn illegal rule) Move 63. Ignore the bishop and play the gold to 49, this will probably extend the game a little bit more, though it is already a lost game.
