My first OTB game

Today, I played my first real OTB game. It was the same time controls as in the upcoming tournament, i.e. 90+30min w/30s increment. I played against a stronger opponent, so the result was expected. However, I made a horrible blunder in the middle game, which rapidly led to a losing position.

I have not added my comments on the game, but have used a computer to suggest alternative lines for the most critical moves.

We are playing a rematch in one week. I am planning (hoping) to do better then.
