Look at this game I just played. Probably the best game of my life, until I completely get whamslamboozled in this ending. I was looking forward to playing e2 mate, and look what happens. Embarassing. Slimed. GAHHHHHHHH!

[Result "1/2-1 ...[text shortened]... 8-10 wins, then played just about the only move that lets White draw.
Very good game especially given the caliber of your opponent! Was this a simul or really one on one?
I like how you were careful not to let him get any real attacking chances. The knight sacrifice ensured he wouldn't get much, but I think you could have done well even if he did get some initiative after hxg4. With White unable to attack Black's king, there is no advantage and after Rxc3, it's clear Black has all the chances. I think you may have actually underestimated your attack by offering a queen trade, but of course, the endgame did become winning for you anyway. Too bad.
