My nice...loses (lose no.2)

Let me present you my another quick lose, in which I demonstrated an absense of feel of danger. The game has been played in one of the most strange tournaments in my life. Ukrainian championship U-20 was extremely strong in 2006. We had 3 2500+ players (Kryvoruchko, Oleksienko and me); Volodymyr Onischuk, Martyn Kravtsiv, Yuri and Andrey Vovks (today all of them have 2600+). Being one of ELO-favourites I collapsed with a score +5-5=1 (one draw with a Champion Kryvoruchko, 5 loses to those who finished in upper part and 5 wins against lower placed players; unique consistency!).

Today you will see my quickest lose from this tournament. The same as in my first example I could not recognise a danger on time.

Test yourself and find the winning combination!

Definitely, defence has not been my best side in chess!
Soon I will show you one more example from this event. 
I hope, my mistakes and their explanation will help you to be a better defender!
