The position below really looked like a pass to me.
So why did I take it?
Because XG hadn't improved much from previous positions
so I reasoned that if it was ND before, it wouldn't be a drop now.
I think it's cheating to use this type of reasoning that I used but
I sometimes get too competitive against XG to resist it.
My cheating seemed vindicated by the analysis which did give
a take (but very thin).
However, it rolled out to a drop which is what it looked like to me
all along.
Cheating attempt failed.
