1-0 after 2 rounds

I lost the second round against the classical Dutch. I misplayed this with the wrong idea. I should have castled long here

and began a king side attack with pawns. Instead, I played 8. Ne5 going for the London e5 knight. Thematic is h3, 0-0-0, Rg1 and advancing the pawns.
On to round 3. I'll keep you all posted.

I got into Philly late tonight, after your 3rd round had started. I hope it went well! The front desk gave me a comp breakfast so I plan to head down around 9:30a. I don't know if I'll study or just conserve energy for my 1:30p game.
