I was playing in the Paul Aaroe memorial here in NJ on October 17-18. I was the lowest rated in a group of 11 (I know, not that much but considering they were above 1600, I didn't really care). In the first round I got a bye, and played a rated game with the TD. It ended within 30 mins, which is pretty fast considerly the time control was 40/90 SD/1. The game is below and I added in some notes. Check the move list for some other variations. I was white.

I admit that some of the variations I used Fritz to analyze.
The rest of the tournament went pretty well for me, I beat and 1820 and drew a 1855(in what turned out to be a winning game). My rating went up to 1453. The MSA for the tourney can be found here http://main.uschess.org/component/option,com_wrapper/Itemid,181/.
If you have any to say or feel that I missed something in the analayze, just comment on it.
