    This one felt good, cannot say for sure how much of it was planned
    but the combination may well have began around move 12

    If i'm being honest, I didn't sense any real winning opportunity until around move 20

    Was anything missed by either player?

    p.s. I had done some annotations for this game, which i had published, but could not find where the pgn was, so just copied this one

    I bet 15.Kxg2 was your quickest move.


    You can surely play 15.bxc6

    He cannot allow 16. cxb7+ Kb8 17.Qxa6 and taking on b7 with the King
    allows the Rook check which is murder.

    Black has no time ito play Bxf1 or Qxf3 B-h1 and Qg2 mate.
    White can mate Black or pick up a bucket load of materail then take back on g2

    Thnx GP!

    Yeah I guess I was just going with what I thought was most comfy at the time
    e.g. losing that rook was bad for me, as i needed both the b and c file under strict control

    But what you shown is just as good if not better... I guess everyone has their own style, mine showed true in this game, but perhaps it will improve over time
