Awesome win against Major Nelson! The run-around-the-lake-and-let-your-opponent-try-to-crack-your-setup defense is not something that works so successfully very often, but here it did! I hope it didn't contribute to Major Nelson dropping out of the tournament ;)

 

BTW, you also could have won / got a good chance of winning against Dutchkillers IMO, by forcing the gen exchange at 55:22. It's then your lieut+sarge+scout vs sarge+miner for him. You can use your scout to identify the miner. The tricky part is that he has only 1 moved piece on b7, if you scout it and that's the sarge you will have to take a risk by trapping it with your lieut+sarge (and potentially letting his miner get a shot at your flag.

 

You could also scout the piece at g10 or j10, which would be the most likely candidates for the other moveable piece IMO. Again, if you find a bomb you still have to take a risk. Once you find the miner, you can try and trap it, and it's very hard for him to exchange sarges before you trap the miner.  

 

Anyway, after letting the gen loose, you couldn't win anymore, barring an open flag.

Thank you. There wasn't much else I could do in the match vs. Major Nelson once I got that far down in material. However, once that miner diffused the bomb in the middle I had a suspicion his flag was behind it, and I remembered that until the end of the game when I finally had a chance to lotto with my colonel. I thought for sure he would go straight for my flag but fortunately he did not.

 

vs. dutchkillers I took what I thought was the safer approach. In that regard, my big mistake was letting him get my last miner. If I could have freed that miner and gotten him loose, I could have gone for the win.
