Treating the experience as some kind of experiment I discovered a couple of interesting facts
- Calculating width seems to suffer more than calculation depth (ie I could see single track lines, but not wider alternatives)
- I was only seeing my ideas, but not my opponents.
- Remembering opening theory is a whole lot harder.
- It's easy to rush headlong to your doom
