All moves in 80 minutes.

Chess can be so frustrating!  I thought I'd try 1 ... d5 for the first time in a very long time, and was happy with my play.  I weathered a bit of early pressure and had an end-game advantage.  My opponent goes for a desperado attack, I see how to defend against it ... then, in time trouble, I panic and mess it up.

Worse, the match result depended on the game ... hey ho, I guess it's just a game!!
