  1. Dubious opening play by black, as I think 5…Bg4 would be stronger since the f1-a6 diagonal is closed. However, Alejandro was able to capitalize with a queenside attack later on. Looks like the downfall was the early Bd3 when it seems Be2 followed by O-O would have led to a much more favorable game for white. After pushing pawns to block the pin and being forced to castle queenside, black took the opportunity to be aggressive on that side of the board and it ultimately led to the win. Well done by Alejandro!
