Mike Serovey Defeats Bob Magabulos

I found another old game played back in 1985 when I was stationed in Giessen, Germany. I called the opening an odd variation of the Pirc Defense but some may disagree on what to call the opening. I won this game in 17 moves against an 1800 rated player when I was only a 1400 rated player myself. This, I believe, was my first win against an 1800, but not my last. The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at http://www.mikeseroveyonchess.com/BobMagabulos-Pirc.html. This was from Round one of the tournament and I don't know right now how well I did in the remaining rounds. Here is the game in PGN.
