I just finished a short game as Black playing the Albin Counter-Gambit. Do any of you play this opening often and if so, what are your feelings about it. I'd appreciate any comments on how my game. Thanks.

Your game shows how white can become easily confused. Your opponent was trying to be way too clever and ignored his development. I wonder what the point of h3 was? Anyway, good job focusing on the critical weakness on c2 as well as exploiting whites uncoordinated pieces and exposed king.
