My second game in the club tournament

This was my game from the second round of our club tournament. I found this game very challenging, though my opponent was a bit too defensive. He thwarted all of my mating ideas and major attacks, so when I saw a series of trades that would lead to a favourable endgame I had to jump on it. 

I tried out King's Indian Defense in this game, in retrospect it's not a good idea to test out openings I just looked up earlier in the day. I didn't really have a good grasp on the opening and ended up wasting several moves early in the game.

It was fun playing a real game against someone with an actual ELO rating. I am of course playing in the "less skilled" group.
