Today's league match was against the team seeded below us, but 3 of our opponents couldn't come, so I played a G/90 alternate game against one of my teammates.

He played a harmless d4 line, but soon there were enough imbalances for an interesting game. I decided to try out playing a little recklessly, grabbing a pawn and later the Exchange. However, I defended well after that and White's compensation dissipated in time trouble.
