An interesting struggle

I lost this game, but it was a very interesting struggle, first over a congested centre, then over a more open queenside. The end was a double-edged affair - I think I found a path to an advantage by going straight for his king and getting it before mine died, plus earlier than that I missed a tactic netting me a piece for a pawn overall - but I didn't see these, and instead blundered the game at the end! A disappointing end but I don't mind too much given that it was a good game!

Opening was a Sicilian Alapin Variation, and I conducted the White pieces.
