A Correspondence Chess Win With White.

This server-based correspondence chess game began in mid-May when I pushed my Knight out to the f3 square and opened with the Reti as I usually like to do. And it ended yesterday when my opponent resigned on his 23rd move, giving me the win by default.

The position of pieces on the board at game’s end and our full move record:
