Note: In Both Games getting second pick was advantageous

I'm much newer and less experienced than MaikMcjuggle, so i'll account myself fewer words accordingly.
Greenland was the obvious First pick, too obvious.
Then i did some analysis ...... for about three hours
I realized that if both players chose greenland first, then whomever got first pick would have an uphill battle everywhere else on the board. With so many potential counters, no other bonus was safe without a combo, and a combo of course would further sacrifice board coverage which was unacceptable
So i remembered the game from this thread and i won it
After picks where drawn i got the lucky straw on Myanmar ( i should've picked that first ) then both of us played sorta casually for the first two turns, not bothering to plan out delays and so on, but that roughly evened out anyway
On turn Four i had a decision to make: Block the Congo or gain a surefire Middle East.
I chose the middle east because it gave me surefire positional advantage no matter what angle he came from
After that the replay speaks for itself
Special Thanks to Hazlenut of MH for helping me out with the 'Norman' picking strategy.
And Of course to Maik starting this series to begin with. I would not have won this game without you
