Room mate opponent!

Niklesh Jain(1893) is my opponent for round 5. Playing against a room mate is always a tricky affair. First of all some trash talks begin like tu kya khelega!
Will give my best etc. I hate all this pre game talks. I dont know. Maybe coz I take chess too seriously. But in any case after the talks its preparation. For me my opponent watched a movie as I prepared. I guess that spurred him to work hard as he woke up at 6 in the morning to prepare. In any case I hope to do well. A motivated opponent is tougher to beat than a skilled but lacking motivation opponent. So will try to give my best!
