Dane vs Nigel, Game 1 of the Third Boris Chessky Cup Head-To-Head

Move 6 - my move in red,
the ideal move in green.
Played the first game of the third head-to-head for the Boris Chessky Cup on Sunday at the Grovetown Hotel.

Dane was White, and came out with the King's Gambit. Computer analysis showed I was ahead until my sixth move - I should've threatened his knight with my f pawn instead of moving my queen.

He dominated the game from that point. There were a couple of sneaky mates I was aiming for, which never eventuated.

Move 34 - my move in red,
the ideal move in green.
I never saw it at the time (obviously), but I should have been able to force a draw on move 34 by taking his knight with my rook instead of moving my king.
