    This is a game I played this weekend at the US Open in a side event. I was using the event as a "warm up", and am playing in the 4 day version later in the week.

    My opponent was an underrated junior player I had been warned about, and the time control was game/60 minutes, so I played something I knew very well.

    EDIT: I could not get this comment to work in the viewer, but at move 20 my opponent almost played ...Rc7, but at the last minute saw that it lost to 21. Nb5!, which ties in with the earlier comment about b5 being a sensitive square.

    Cool game, young and energetic vs. Experienced and aged.
