Here is a game I played from the 6th Annual Gulf Coast New Year's Open played in Estero, Florida-USA. This game gave me a plus score for the tournament, first time that's happened in a while, with 2 wins, 2 draws, and 1 loss 

The opening is the Smith-Morra Gambit, which has not been covered in our opening courses. I played Diego back in October and was prepared for his Sicilian counter. During post-game analysis of the October game, I discovered 3. Nf6 as an improvement over the 3. Nc6 I played in that game. A testament to post-game analysis, pre-game preparation (reviewed the games of players in the tournament I had previously played), and the value of a good database for research.

demolished in caro-kann defence with a very tricky trap, even engine don't understand what's going on, it's worth investigating :)

Hi.. all. I am Ratheesh, a chess enthusiast from India. my rating is FIDE1003 (i 've played only one tournament in my life). here I am posting one the games which I 've played in chess.com. I know that the game is not so good and have many mistakes. but I feel that I 've perfectly played the ending(B vs N) from an equal position.

Hello chess lovers! Giorgos Kechahias here and I have a very interesting game for ypu, played on lichess.org with a rapid 10+0 time control. I made only one inaccuracy in this game, but this innacuracy is not inaccuracy, because it was my decision to go for king's gambit, and especially bishop's gambit, which is a very sharp line. I hope my game will be an example for players who want to learn this opening. I am playing white. Sorry for not being able to upload the file.

Here is my blitz game against Candidate Master from Saudi Arabia  Abdulrahman Masrahi

https://www.chess.com/live/game/4387601404

Though he blundered very bad I think I got fairly better position before the blunder, due to superior opening prep (chessmood's hyper accelerated dragon)
