    How the heck did you win that game? Did you pull Stockcontrol from a burning building or something?

    5.Nb5? hangs the e-pawn with check. I'd try 5.Qd3.

    5...Bd6? leads to weak d-pawns that block development of Bc8.

    11.Nd5! would have led to 11...Qd8 12.Nxf6+ gxf6 13.Bxh6, shattering Black's Kingside. White is threatening both Bxf8 and mate by Qg4+.

    13.Bxe5? helps Black fix his pawns. [Black should have replied 13...dxe5]

    I stopped analyzing at this point.

    good call that would have been crushing
