    It never really seemed like you were that far behind. Good win though.

    I saw some cool posibilities for black on move 14:

    That's a good spot Viv. That would have been a turn around!

    Instead of retreating the Rook from c6 White could have wrapped it thus.

    [Result "*"]
    [FEN "rn2k2r/pppb1pp1/4pq2/8/1BBP2p1/1Q3P2/PP4PP/R4RK1 b kq - 0 1"]

    1...Rxh2 2.Kxh2 Qh4+ 3.Kg1 g3 { No way to stop mate. And black still could've caused a world of trouble, if you didn't take the rook.}

    This reminds me of a position in the "Fishing Pole" however, that is a King pawn opening.

    No black can play the simple Qc5 and that plan is thwarted.

    You don't want to do that. It looks stupid.

    I think this game was good because of the rating difference, not necessarily because it was a brilliant game.
