So with my rating over 2050 (very much inflated), I sought a new game, this time setting the low rating seek limit to 1900. I was quite surprised to find myself in a new game with a 2500+ player. Well, lets just say my opponent probably didn't enjoy this game very much. Unless he enjoys the occasional slaughter of his opponents.
I didn't give him a very good game. My main mistake was a desire to get into a familiar setup. My opponent changed up the move order I'm used to and I walked into a trap. What makes it worse is that I'm familiar with the trap. I was too preoccupied with concerns regarding the opening setup veering out of familiar territory that I just spaced. I realized what I had done almost immediately after move 6. ... g6 in the game. I make other mistakes after that as I try to get myself out of the situation. There is some learning there as well, mostly strategy and psychology of handle that type of situation.
Anyway, here is the game. Maybe you'll enjoy watching me get crushed pretty quickly.
