    dude i think that you should have opened the game up, you have two beautiful bishops, both on long diagonals, whites move 12.e5 looks really dubious, i mean what was the point of it?

    I don't know but I do know that 40. ... Qf7 is a one-move blunder, 41. h3 was an unnecessary move, 41. Rd8+ Kg7 42. Rd7 immediately wins as 42. ... Rf1+ 43. Nxf1 and then the Queen cannot move Qxf1# because she's pinned

    yes i seen that in retrospect, sorry 🙂 28..e5, i think looks a little suspect, it leaves your king a little exposed and although the idea of gaining a passed pawn was good, it was an isolated passed pawn and well white could easily eat him up! But alas it never got to that because like Heinzkat stated just a blunder decided it in the end.

    Why is move 40 a one move blunder?

    Because it loses black a Queen?

    mmm, it looks like a blunder because it allows Rd8 and where is the king to go? if he goes to g7 then Rook goes to d7 and the queen is gone 🙁
