First tournament win!

I'm happy about this one. I noticed a couple of things just from a "this is appropriate play" standpoint:

1) My opponent was moving very quickly, this has slowly become a trigger in my head to que me to simply play my own game. He/she will move when he/she moves. Don't get caught in their game. Your clock does not move any faster when theirs does.

2) I let go of the outcome.

3) I was pretty comfortable with my opening play, even though I don't think this is technically an "opening"

Here's the game:
