Where is the wine?

Finished already 735 exercises and past the halfway hallmark of level 4. My rating is dropping quickly. Current status: 77 percent. I need some backup quickly.
The need to finish these exercises becomes more important than the correctness of solving them. I think I am starting to loose my patience.

Anyway I decided to post a game of my which I am rather proud off. I like especially the Knight move in this game. (OTB 30 moves in 1hr30min and 1hr KO)

Montse (1449) - Pierre Herremerre (1650) [C02]
