Mike Serovey Loses to Nathalie van der Lende

I played only one Round of the 18th Annual Southern Open and that was a loss to Nathalie van der Lende of Holland. The complete game, with analysis and diagrams, can be found at There is a picture of her on that page that is a few years old. Here is a video that shows her near the end of it and you can see what she looks like now. She is the 17 year old girl with the long brown hair.

Here is the game in PGN:
