More games from Las Vegas

Here are three more of my games from the North American Open.

The first was a strange game, I thought I got a good position out of the opening and then all of a sudden I was in big time pressure and a really tough position.


In the following game my opponent fell for my opening trap but got lots of compensation for the exchange and was even better at one point. The game was decided in mutual time trouble.
This was my second 22 move win with Black. I set a trap on the 18th and was happy to find the line in the variation with 21...d3  against White's best move (21.Bc7) which at the time I thought was winning for me. As it turns out it's not so clear but luckily White blundered on the 21st move
