It looks like we will win our match from last night against Hatsings 2 (see the report here). My game against Alfredo Luaces was the first to finish, as I won in only 20 moves as Black. My opponent was unsettled by a bad day at work, and by his own admission did not play well. Although after the game he was pessimistic about his chances out of the opening, he was in fact only definitely losing after 19 Rh1, although his position had been uncomfortable since I played 13…e5.
I give the game below with some notes.
