    Hey all, new to the forums and looking for some feedback on my a few interesting games as I've recently taken up chess again. I tired to 'insert board from pgn' copying and pasting the pgn file but it's saying "invalid PGN inserted. No idea how to get this working so help with that is much appreciated as are comments in this game.

    Here is the version I annotated when reviewing this myself:

    1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 c5 4.c3 Nc6 5.Ne2?
    Hinders white's developement. The knight is better on f3.
    5...Qb6
    More normal is Nf6. Black is fine after 6. e5 6...Nd2.6.exd5 exd5 7.Nf3 Nf6 8.Rb1 cxd4?
    Gives up d4 control and creates an IQP.9.Nexd4 Nxd4 10.Nxd4 Bc5 11.Be3 O-O 12.Be2 Re8 13.O-O Qd6
    Felt the Q was misplaced now on b6 and this refutes 14. b4.14.Bf3 Bxd4
    My idea was to give up the dark squared bishop in order to stick its counter part on f5 with tempo and then the knight on d4, well supported.15.Bxd4 Bf5 16.Rc1 Ne4 17.Be2 Rad8 18.Bd3 Bg6?
    Meh, better is Qg6. The Q is better placed there and it wastes less time.19.Qc2 Re7 20.f4? =
    Gives up any advantage, creating an outpost on e5, 21. f5 is easily dealt with by my next move.
    20...Bf5! 21.h3 Qg6
    At the time I thought 22. g4 was a threat, it's not 22...bd7 is fine and white's king is compromised. I was planning a dumb unsound sac of Bxg4. Lesson: don't make pointless sacs!22.Rf3 Rde8 23.Kh2 Nd6??
    A mistake, allowing 24.Rg3 This forces 24...Bxd3 25.Rxg6 and g7 is underfire after the recapture.24.Bxf5?
    Luckily he misses it.
    24...Nxf5 25.Rf2 Qg3+ 26.Kg1 Nh4
    Not the strongest, allows Rf1, white's best defensive resource.27.Rcf1 Re1 28.Bxa7 Rxf1+ 29.Kxf1 Qh2 30.Re2 Qh1+ 31.Kf2?? Qxg2+ 32.Ke1 Nf3+
    Hooplehead resigns. This attack was stoppable at a couple of points, but not bad for a 15 min game imo!0-1

    only given this a cursory glance but 31 Bg1 looks good for white
