  Richard Taylor: But it's still a long endgame!

I played more or less the same moves Alekhine played, not knowing the opening but my opponent played 7. ... Nbd2 which is o.k. and after a swinging game with mistakes I won with a combination / K-side attack. But White had a good position most of the game, or a reasonable position.
