RC Woods VS the Economist

This is a leisure game played over a couple of days in New York, 2009, between me and a strong Dutch player rated approx. 2300 elo. It should be noted that he did not play his usual Sicilian, allowing me to play the Italian game - the opening system I have been exploring for a while now. Also, while there was no pressure on either of us, I spend much more time on most of my moves.

That being said, I think I have every right to be happy with my play during the game. While I eventually lost, the game seemed very equal right to the very end. That I did loose after all is no more than reasonable I guess :).
