Tough fight, but both sides missed a few chances. I didn't like 6.Nxc6 as it just bolstered Black's center, 6.Be3 continuing your development was better. 13...e5 was poor, as Black gave himself a backward isolano at d6. 16.a3 was just a waste of time, as was 18.Be2. If you needed this Bishop to retreat, you should have gone all the way back to f1, leaving ...[text shortened]... awns, while I don't know if White can fend off Black's passers as they are already far advanced.
You're right at several points.
I blundered ca. 2 times, he blundered ca. 4 times.
I played 6. Nxc6 because I didn't feel in the mood for main line of Dragon variation.
That's why I considered 4. g4 for a couple of minutes.
was wasting of time, he had 12. ...Nd7 with advantage.
was a blunder, because I had 14. Bxh6, but I played a tempo Be3 and didn't even notice that before I got home.
are waistng of time, all right, at the time I was so pesimistic, that I considered my position "strategically lost" so I was preparing my self for defense and I saw ghost in the form of Nb4...
My position wasn't so bad however:: 15. Bb3 was better and even gave me some advantage.
After 19. Na4
I had already in mind to move Pawn to c3 in order to stir the water, but Black had 19. ...Nxe4!
. Neither of us saw this.
After 20. ...f5
I had neat 21. Bd3. No need for 21. c3, but I as I said I thought I was lost at the moment.
Of course, it was better.
In 24th move, I had better 24. Nxe4 or 24 Nxe6, but I was happy I survived so far.
was weaker.because Black had 24...Bd5! instead of weak 24....Bf5
He should have taken it with Bishop. Now White has advantage.
I am losing great deal the advantage: 29. g4! was better.
Black revenches, he had 29. ...e3!
I could play 31. Kf1
wasn-t mistake as I thought on my way home, but here I should take a draw with 35. Ne6 and repetition.
I thought it was a brilliant idea with check-mate, but in fact Black should have played 25...Re1+ first Now I had draw with repetead checks by Knight.
Now Black had to win. I had 36. Nf8+! with advantage!
But not with .
--- 37. ...Ra2! was winning move as sundown316
I am thinking of win instead of draw, and now Black again got a winning chance 40. ..Bd4, as sundown spotted.
and now it's a draw.
A game full of mistakes.
