Here is another one of my recent USCF tournament games. This is in the last round of the tournament, I was 1/2 going into this game, in the first round defeating an 1834 and in the second round losing to a 1851. Just to set the stage, going into round 3. If I were to win the game I would reach my highest USCF rating ever, if I were to lose I would go down at least 10 points, and if I were to draw I would only gain 2 or 3 points. So the pressure is on! Here is the last game with full instructional annotations.
