7...c4?!
A mistake. this eventually forces me to leave K in center for a long time.

9...dxe4
Retreating the dg B to e7 mite have been better but I was intent on setting up B-Q battery on the diagonol.

Shredder gives white a 1.65 advantage here.

To free the knight to go to e5 in case he pushes...d5.

Sigh of relief. Shredder has game virtually even now.

16.g3?
This costs white the light-squared bishop.

16...f5!
Traps the B. I figure I can hold e6 against whatever comes.

20...e5!?
Costs me a pawn though b8 B now has choice of two good diaganols.

Got to be careful to avoid a back-rank mate.

23...Rg4
-2.49/10

24.Qf3?
Costs white another piece.

25.e6!
Now I've got two pieces hanging.

-3.51/12

26.Kf1
Moving K to either g2 or h1 would have permitted Bb7.

Now, if gxH4, black wins with Qg1+

-0.95/13

31...Qe8??
I took a long time on this move but simply glitched. Rxd8 works just fine. If Rxd8 exd8; Bxd8 and there's no back rank mate since Q covers d8. If Rxd8, e8=Q; Rxe8.

32.Rxe8+??
Don returns the favor. After Rxb8, I can't play Qxb8 because of e8=Q, and mate in one.

32...Rxe8
+5.77/11

33.Qf2
Don offered a draw here, but I turned it down though it was tempting after having just dodged a bullet. I figured that after Rd6, I'd have a big edge because of scope of bishops and exposed position of his K. Plus, he's way short on time.

And white ran out of time facing a mate in one. I had 50 seconds left. 0-1
