Hey John,

This is Victor Rosas. You played a really good game. The queens gambit is an opening I have never played before so I was very unfamiliar with the lines and well this isolated d-pawn + bad bishop was a pain for me all game. I think at some point Nxe6 and e4! was decisive (main reason why I wasn't doing anything) I kept on thinking about this possibility. As a last comment, I feel that you should have taken your time. I had 35 seconds for quite a few moves and you had like 40 minutes. Anyways, Thanks for the game analysis.
