Tournament of Lepers II, Round 3: Polly

After the bye in round two, I had a fun game today against Polly. This tournament rocks, I really enjoy meeting everybody online. Polly - I loved our chat, you're awesome. So anyways, I was fully expecting an ass whooping since she's the number 3 seed and generally seems to really know what she's doing, but somehow I managed to win with black. Here's the game with some analysis:

Your analysis seems to fall in place with what i looked at later. It seems like my bishop trade would not have been so bad if I moved my king sooner.

Nicely done!

That was exciting. :)

As usual, it's those darn tactics that us class players keep missing.
