My opponent is higher rated than me - 1690 to 1419 - but he's someone I usually feel I have a good chance against. This time he made a mistake in the opening, and I responded correctly. But then I lost my way and he should have won.  I managed to find a couple of good moves, and then towards the end he got in time trouble (so far as you can when you have 30 seconds added per move), and I saw what looked like a chance for perpetual check.

I think this was more interesting than most of my games and I'll try to analyze it, but no I need to eat and sleep.

[Friday] OK, I have added some analysis and comments.
