Dear Eric Angelini,

Congratulations on finding a vast improvement! The idea of using the
second rank pawns to attack the 3rd rank square is a brilliant one! Since
there are no tempo moves, as that would allow for a parity switch to save a
ply, I think it is safe to say that this is optimal. Thanks for the fun
challenge-I look forward to your next one!

Oh, and here is your game in algebraic notation: 1. a4 d5 2. a5 d4 3. a6 d3
4. axb7 dxc2 5. bxc8=N cxd1=N 6. Nb6 Nf6 7. Na4 Ne4 8. h4 f5 9. h5 f4 10.
h6 f3 11. hxg7 fxg2 12. Nf3 g1=N 13. g8=N Nxe2 14. Nxe7 Na6 15. Nd5 Nb4 16.
Ra3 Na2 17. Rxh7 Qf6 18. Rxc7 Rh3 19. Rc2 Bb4 20. Nd4 Rc8 21. Nb5
