Just not my day

Sometimes when you turn up for a tournament game, nothing seems to go right. This seemed to be a problem for one of my opponents at the 2004 Olympiad in Majorca. I'm not sure if he was a victim of the late nights that usually effect players on the lower boards (including myself), but he did miss one of the oldest tricks in the book with 7.Nxe5 After that his position kept getting worse and worse, and by the time I captured the knight on e5 he seemed almost glad to resign. "Just not my day" he said as he offered his hand.
