    Right now I could only dream of an OTB rating of 2220, but I find it highly unlikely I would blunder the opening as badly as he did. That is the kind of amateur mistake I see the young kids at the chess club making. He should have known better, and he lost badly because he ignored opening principles.

    Well, it was a blunder but he did get two pawns for his knight while removing whites right to castle. I like this game because white finds some quite brilliant tactics. Black could obvioulsy have played better but the loser always can.
