Round of the Tournament

In my next round, I was black on board 2, paired against a very young FM. I'd say he reminds me of one of the "genius kids" that IM Pruess is always talking about, but he's at the club often enough, and I've seen him around often enough that he's just (name omitted for the kid's protection - he's a minor after all).

This was a really interesting and tense struggle, not super well played by either side I suppose, but not so horrible either, and very interesting. One of our colleagues on board one seemed more interested in our game than in his own! Anyway, without further ado, here it is:

I hope you read through all the variations, and I'd really appreciate it if you'd post some comments - I like knowing that people actually read this stuff!
