I happened to dig up the scoresheet of this game yesterday and I thought I'd post it here. It's from 2005, so at the time I was aged 21 and my opponent was about 11. It was from the first round of a tournament, and I turned up 10mins late to find 1.e4 already on the board, and a grinning confident-looking child sitting opposite me. I wasn't feeling particularly well either, and I had the black pieces. Certainly my opponent didn't appear scared of the 300-point rating gap between us.
great game... nicely played on both sides!
