  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. http://usclnews.blogspot.com/2011/1...

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