Round 5 was where I did something I very much enjoy -- damn the torpedoes and go full speed ahead. Sometimes it works, and other times (like this) it doesn't. But I had nothing to lose at this point, and chess is supposed to be fun, so I launched an insane attack that had my former co-champion sweating bullets for a few moves. It was divine providence that gave him one way of stopping a beautiful checkmate, but it was hard work that got him the win after that.
