I ground out a five hour win last night against an 11 year old 2100 and someone I used to teach in chess camps and classes. It wasn't a pretty game and I had to decine 3 draw offers along the way, but eventually I pulled through.

I'm still analyzing the game, but I'm going to post a few tactical traps that I had to watch out for in the meantime. Fortunately, for me, I didn't fall into any of them, but it shows the pitfalls that had to be avoided. Happy puzzle solving! Feel free to post answers in the comments.
