Nostalgia: IGS game with soft

I stumbled upon this old game of mine played in year 2000 on IGS.
The opponent I played was no doubt a pro, rumoured to be Kobayashi Koichi 9p.
My heartbeat speeded up when he accepted the game -- such an honour! :)

It was a fast game (25 moves per 5 min?). When reviewing now, I don't understand
why I missed B-16 atari. Although black didn't get any big group killed, you can
see how a pro bullies an amateur player and deprives him of points on board.
