Struggle in the Berlin Defense

In this game I played black against the Ruy Lopez, and I decided to go with the Berlin Defense. Usually, that results in an early queen exchange and a relatively safe game for black. After an inaccuracy from my opponent I got the upper hand though, and an intense struggle ensued. After misplaying my cards I felt stuck in a losing position, until another inaccuracy allowed me to go for the win after all. I perceived it as a very tense game, a pleasure to play!
