    I'm a 1200 player looking for a little analysis if anyone can spare the time. Having looked over the game, I realize I missed a mating opportunity after 31b where I could have sacraficed my queen and won with my rook. Anything else I missed?
    I am also open to constructive comments as to what I should be specifically studying to further improve my play (yes tactics but which ones demonstrated by this game am I weak in?).
    Thank you for your time,

    Well, you messed up during most of the game and should have lost. But so did your opponent, and on move 32, instead of playing Qc7+, you could have mated him in a few moves with 32.Bd5+.

    Chess is played with the mind,not with the mouse.

    I think you might have missed an opportunity on move 3 ... instead of playing Qe2, play d4 straight away and the Black knight is struggling to find a safe square - it's a very dodgy Alekhine variation.
