from here the game slowly continued down hill. So I ask, where exactly did I start to lose? He said Bxg7 was bad, along with exchanging off my knight on f5 and it makes sense, I had a dark square weakness for quiet awhile. de, but I had never seen that before. Regardless, what should I have done?
I checked your position with Fritz and had it play a game with itself with your games position at move 19. And everytime i played it (twice) white(you) defeated black easily. So in my opinion after seeing this. You actually had the better position. At move 19 at least. Unless Fritz is wrong.
p.s. I didn't allow it much time to calulate, though. (I pressed the "force engine to move now" button alot) Not sure how the game would have turned out if i let it take it's time but that would be very time consuming.
