    I'm not sure if this is a Benko Gambit or a Blumenfeld, but I think Qb6 is supposed to be inferior for black. However, I'm an inferior player, so it suits me well.Wink   Anyway, it worked out OK in this case......

    15.ba4? is a fatal mistake. White looks better after 11.e3 (instead of 11.b3) as well as after 13.ef3 (instead of 13.Qxf6).

    Neglecting the kingside development for that long cannot be good.

    I thought so, too. Even after 14...Bxa4, e3 is porbably better: 15.e3 Bc6 16.Bxc4 Bxg2? 17.Qf6 Qh5 (17...Bd5? 18.Qe5+) 18.Rg1 Bd5 19.Rg8 Nc6 20.Rxf8+ KxR 21.Qh8#.
