Got Mauled in the Dojo

Last Sunday I played my second-round game in the Chess Dojo Round Robin tournament. My opponent is rated a good bit below me, at least in blitz (1570) and rapid (1865), so I was the favorite going in.

However, my opponent played very well, and I got into trouble out of the opening (a semi-slav). My opponent also played the game with a staggering 98.5 accuracy using only 30 minutes on the clock, so I guess it is no shame to lose to such a performance!

Did an analysis of the game using tools, that I find pretty useful

My game

I have found some games in the same opening line to get some ideas from

First if 6. Nbd7 there is a beutiful game by Steinitz from the 1899 WCC!

Look at this game by Curt Hansen in the following line: 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Nf3 c6 5. e3 Nbd7 6. Bd3 dxc4 7. Bxc4 b5 8. Bd3 Bd6 9. O-O
