Weird looking moves are usually bad! Β· Road to GM, Game 280

I ruined a good position in one move. It was a weird, unnatural move. Moves like that need to be examined carefully and thought through twice. I didn’t go through a blunder checking process and ended up runining my position and resigning soon after.
