The first of my games from the Ontario Open championship.  I had a fourth consecutive awful tournament and took a serious rating hit (again).  My final score was 1.5/6 with 3 losses and 3 draws. 

I was going to refrain from annotating this game out of personal annoyance, but if not the reader, perhaps I will be able to learn something that will end this frustrating slump.

What's annoying is that I'm really liking the way my games unfold.  I feel as though I am getting fantastic positions and then completely self destructing. That's what happened here.

On that note, I've included some detailed annotations.  This is a fairly interesting game. Enjoy :)
