    I don't know if this go's here or in help, but any way can I get some feedback on how i could have played this game better. I played Black and I allready see that 3...,Nd7. was a bad move.

    Is this a joke? An 11 move mate and you want to see if you could have done it better? Or are you saying it was just luck you had the mate?

    It felt like luck, I think he made his fatal mistake at move 9 Bg5. I saw the mate threat but I thought he would capture the d pawn with the Queen, no mate if he had. I guess What I'm asking for is a 2 opinion on the strength of my moves, because they all-ways seem good to me, even if there not. Objectivity for short.

    Yep, 3...c5 is book. You need to attack the white pawn chain immediately.

    the real boner was taking the pawn with knight. He would have had a much better game with Q-e2+ which stops the mate with a check of his own. Then he could castle and get the king out of harms way for a while.
