Mike Serovey Loses To jks2000

In Round 4 of the Tuesday night Standard tournament for July, 11 PM Open section, I lost to jks2000. This game is the second time that I lost a game at ICC because of a mouse slip. On move 10 I moved the King over to g8 to castle kingside and the software moved the King to f8 instead! Unfortunately, I could not remember how to ask for a take back of that move. By the time I had figured out how to ask for a take back several moves had transpired and it was too late. Even if I had remembered how to ask for a take back, my opponent could have been a jerk about it and said, "No". He does not have to allow the take back. I wasted so much time trying to get my King into a castled position that my opponent was able to get a strong queenside attack going before I could get my kingside attack going. In the future, I will ask for a take back if I have another mouse slip like that. I have decided not to post this game to my chess site but I will post it here. Here is the game in PGN.
