In this game I was up against the top seed in the tournament. GS is known as an agressive, tactical player, and I was careful not to fall into any sophisticated traps (I only fell for a simple trap). I should take care next time to bone up on a little 1.d4 theory and not play the blitz-y 4....Bf5, or at least not play it without knowing how to resist white's consequent queenside initiative. The middle game went better, and I even managed to dog him long enough for him to blunder back my piece... but the d pawn turned out to be a little too much. At least in terms of results, this was my worst game of the tournament.
