October 22 2013 Game
This was my 37th over the board rated tournament game with a 2 hour time control. It was against Manojh. (Note that for last week's game, my opponent didn't show up, and regretably I won on forfeit)
I had faced Manojh in tournament play only a few months earlier and had underestimated his play. At that point he was rated 1007 and he won when I moved too quickly, seeing a tactic he could use against me to win a piece for 2 pawns. Unfortunately, he saw it to.
A few months later, and he is rated 500 points higher. He is obviously a rapidly improving junior.
During the game, I was out of book after move 2. I didn't panic. I just took more time in the opening and thought things through. I used approximately 30 minutes for my first 10 moves. I thought I navigated this game fairly well.
I will analyse it in further depth at a later time.
