Northern Virginia Open Results

Hi everyone! This past weekend, I finished 3/5 at the Northern Virginia Open, finishing with two wins and two draws. I actually drew my first FIDE Master, who was rated 2480, and I am currently working on a video and post for that game.

In the mean time, here is a tactic from my second round game. Now in the endgame, my opponent played Nc3-e2??. Can you find the winning blow?

In this position, I found …Nd4-f3+ winning because of discovery to the queen.
