Missed Philidor's legacy!
1. d4 Ng8f6 2. c4 e6 3. Ng1f3 Bf8b4
This opening is called the Bogo-Indian defence... if a knight was on c3 instead of f3 it would have been the Nimzo-Indian
4. Bc1d2 Bb4xd2 5. Qd1xd2 b6 6. g3 Bc8b7 7. Bf1g2 d6 8. Nb1c3 Nb8d7 9. O-O O-O 10. d5

11. cxd5 Rf8e8 12. Nf3d4 Nd7c5 13. f3
? White may have had concerns for the e4 square, but this is an obvious mistake, as it drops the pawn on d5
13... Nf6xd5 14. Nc3xd5 Bb7xd5 15. b4 Nc5e6 16. Nd4f5 Bd5b7 17. Qd2c3 Qd8g5
? This move seemed to look ok but 18. f3-f4 Qxf5 19. Bxb7 removes Black's Bishop, and makes the game more equal
? But instead, White made a mistake and allows...
... a strong move, exploiting the pinned g3 pawn whilst hitting an unprotected Bishop and threatening a royal fork on e2... something has to give
19. Kg1h1 Nf4xh3 20. Nf5h4 c5
? Rxe2 was better, there was no need to be concerned about the Queenside pawns yet
21. Ra1e1 Re8e3 22. Qc3d2 Qg5e5 23. Nh4g2 Re3a3 24. bxc5 dxc5 25. Re1d1 Qe5d4
Black says "Ok i'm winning, let's exchange Queens"
White of course refuses
