Montana State Championship 2017 - Round 2
Round 2 was mindblowing. Here I had a chance to play one of my favorite openings against someone who never had been exposed to it, and I was coasting to victory with loads of extra time when a single mistake changed everything and left me so annoyed I got crushed shortly thereafter. Another funny thing is that my opponent is someone I beat the last time we met, but who has improved immensely and is the (deserved) new state champion, Antonius Raelund. He figured out how to play against the Budapest defense over the board; the worry on his face and the time he was using up were quite real, yet he pulled through and scored an impressive victory. I look forward to our next meeting.
