  perfidious: This seems an example of castling into it.

One rather doubts that Esserman was then rated 2425, as I played him one year later in my last but one event, when he was rated ~2100.

  FSR: Esserman is a tactical maniac (in case you couldn't tell). Earlier this year he published a great book on the Smith-Morra Gambit, <Mayhem in the Morra!>.

  FSR: Esserman describes both players as "NM," implying that they were rated over 2199 but below 2400.

Two exclams for the freshness and creativity of youth. And two question marks for the ignorance and naivety of, well, youth. (Esserman's comment)
