Northeast Open after round 2

So far I have one loss in round 1 against an 1800 player and a win ( as Black) against a 1712 player in round 2.

In round 1 I had a great attack with minor pieces in the center. I mis-calculated an exchange and ...again ... I didn't calculate my opponent's inbetween move ( 4 moves deep). This happened to me at the World Open and I managed to salvage a draw.
In round 2, I played the Caro-Kann against a Panov-Botvinick attack variation and my move 6 was questionable ( according to book.. which is about as far as I can remember in this line). I played a Nc6 which looks normal from a development standpoint... but foretunately, my opponent didn't see the cramping c5 advance. Instead he played b3 which really allowed me to bring my bishop to b4 ( what I should have done on move 6).

Here is a pgn of teh game in round 2:
