Post A nobody against a 2000 - second win in second game
Dear friends

I'm playing my first ever tournament and just defeated a 2000+ player. I wonder what you think of that game and where I could have done better; my moves were basically inspired from a game my opponent lost two months ago, so I was a bit nervous when he deviated at move 10 (0-0 instead of the prepared Qe7). I'm sure I must have missed stronger and sharper continuations in whites plan of en early g4, and I guess my opponent didn't play the endgame very well. So, please let me know where you see improvements -- and feel free to congratulate (fyi: I'm at best a class c player)

Cheers, Raphael

Well played! I can't say the same about your opponent though. Nice to see the Reti Gambit in action.

You played really nicely! Honestly though your opponent doesn't look like a 2000 player, he made some quite strange moves. Maybe he's an opening buff and not so strong when faced with something fairly obscure like the Reti Gambit.

Well done on your win :)
