Doeberl Cup Day 5

The final day of the Doeberl Cup saw me playing white against Tristan Stevens, who now calls Queensland home. I decided that I was willing to take some chances in the game & was prepared to play a Blackmar-Diemer Gambit if Tristan allowed it, however Tristan avoided it & the game turned into a Pirc Defence. Tristan blundered with 10... Nbd7 in the opening, which allowed me to win a piece for two pawns. Tristan then tried to launch an attack, which lasted for quite a while before I started to nullify his pressure. After the final blunder 41... Rf7 I found a tactical finish to the game to take the point & finish the tournament on 50% with 4.5/9
