Bobby Fischer Memorial: Round 2

Apparently I was the lowest-rated player to win the first round, because I got paired with the highest-rated player with a score of 0.5. Again, the time control worked in my favor, and this time there were no crazy tactics at the end: I got a good position out of the opening, won material, and carried an advantage into the endgame.

At this point I was one of only four players with two points, so I knew I'd be facing some very tough opposition in Round 3.
