C45 Scotch Game (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nxc6 bxc6 6.e5 Qe7 7.Qe2 Nd5 8.Nd2)

Like the game I shared yesterday, this one was also played at the 2016 November Octet I 1870+ tournament that was held at Red Hot Pawn. My opponent in this game, 7copeland, was 2nd in the final standings with 34 points. 7copeland was 8 points behind the winner of the tournament mihai52 (2393). I lost both my games against 7copeland, whose rating at the moment of me typing this is 2302. My current rating at Red Hot Pawn is 1783.
