2200+ is perhaps a little too strong, stray away from those until you are above 2000 yourself!

I published some annotations of the game for you. Go to "community> annotated games" section of RHP and look for your game. Did you see that already?

You need to read the book "Combinations and traps in the opening" by Boris Vainstein.

Originally posted by @eladarThe dark squares around black's king is quite weak, so I think Ng5 instead of Bg5 would have been more crushing, since it forces black to exchange his dark squared bishop for your knight and after the rather forced move f5 by black, your bishop goes to f6 where it would be well-placed, completely unopposed (black dark squared bishop was the only piece to challenge yours) and also well-protected by the pawn on e5.
I always feel that my attacks are simply brute force and awkwardness.
I thought my attack was off when my opponent played Be7, but his Qe8 really helped me out. But even so, f6 instead of taking the knight and I'm not sure if I could force the mate.
So any suggestions on how to better mount the attack would be appreciated.
If he played f6 I planned to take with my bishop to open the h5 square for my knight.
