Imagine yourself in this situation:  You're playing in an big Open tournament and are paired against a GM rated nearly 600 Elo points higher than you.  After 19 moves your illustrious opponent seems to hang a rook for no reason whatsoever.  Would you panic and blow your chance or would you calmly steer the game to victory?
