This game started well for me, outplaying my oppenent throughout the fuseki and early middle game. Overconfident of my victory, I had a lapse in concentration, and in a flurry of overplays and simple mistakes I threw it away. I think this game demonstrates why people say to respect your opponent, in sports as well as mind games.
