Hillbilly Attack Fizzles

The Hillbilly Attack (1.e4 c6 2.Bc4) is not a good response to the Caro-Kann. It generally costs white a couple tempi, and black comes out of the opening with an advantage having completed development first.

However, in this game I got over confident and the fizzle was my response as I managed to squander my advantage by around move 10. I did eventually win the game due to some blunders by my opponent, but the beginning is an object lesson about not getting too cocky.
