Blast from the Past

Here is the interesting game I played in the Commercial Chess League of NewYork last week.

I was playing on the first board against strong FM Rico Salimbagat. We have a long history - first time I've played him was in 1998 in Las Vegas.

We were playing strong Philippino's Team (Albano's Law). They have strong FM on the first, IM on the 2nd... But we had 2 good last boards, so I was thinking initially of making the draw and let our tail win. But what happened next was really unexpected.
