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. Anyway, it worked out OK in this case......
Benoni and Benko gambit.
It's a pure Blumenfeld.
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#.
