    Good stuff.

    OK your opponent made a silly error but you played a sound
    opening that tempted him into a blunder.

    One wee quibble 16...Nf4 instead of 61...h5 would have shook him.
    (always look to cover the flight squares when hunting Kings).
    He would have to give up his Queen to avoid mate.

    There was also a standard blitz trap you could have set him.
    12...Bd6 instead of 12...Qd6.



    If 13.Qxd5 then 13...Bxh2+ wins the Queen.

    That's not a very nice thing to say, and in any case, it isn't true. Black did play well. Not Master level well, but he sacced a pawn and laid the groundwork for a solid counterpunch in the opening. Even if white would have traded queens (as he should have), black had enough of a development lead to compensate for the pawn deficit. He also executed the attack well, although after Qxh2, it was pretty much fish in a barrel.

    In any case, why even say that to a person who is posting what he says is his best game, other than to be mean?

    I noticed 18.Ke2 seems to be pretty good and daring.
