    This is a game I played, I haven't analysed this with engine, but I've annotated the game a little.

    Please post me feedback on moves I can do better.

    Especially after the crucial moment on move 18.

    Your worst move was 17...g5. Even if he didn't launch an attack immediately, you put an opening in your Kingside pawn structure with all pieces still on the board. Pushing the pawns in front of your castled king is a general no-no. Hard to determine the best move, though. I would have taken the bishop immediately to help cope with the spacial issues. Instead of 20. Re6, why not 20.Bxe5, removing the attacker of the knight and adding a defender? Gives your bishop some use as well. You are still in an awkward position and under attack, but an attack from which I think you can recuperate.

    Yes, I badly missed 20. Bxe5.. Maybe I can pull a half point if I found that :D

    10. ..., Nb4 seems to be a strong move you could have played.

    The simple 17.... nxb would have helped.

    What was your plan when playing 8. ... b6? I think you want to create an attack on the white castled king with two bishops in attacking position. Hence, you want your bishop of the black fields on b8. That makes the rook on a8 useless and I would make sure that that rook can come into play preferring 10. ... Rc8 above 10. ... h6 and 11. ... Re8. When white has played Qc2 will the rook on c8 create a threat and will the move d5 be the liberating move for black. What would now be the move for black with which he can grab the initiative?

    So 10. ... Rc8 11. a3 a6 12. b4 Bd6 13. Bb2 and black can think about playing or preparing moves as Bb8, Ne7, Qc7, Rfd8, d5.
