please analysis this game for me, how well im doing and is there any tactic that i miss?
just at a quick glance i would have played 15. Bg5 forcing his king to move and trapping his knight to the side of the board. also why sacrafice your bishop with no clear compensation.
you mean 15.Bb4+ ?
yeah sorry lol im half asleep, anyway you finnishe him off nicely
Bb4+ allows white to move his knight back to c3 for free, improving white's position; white's king wouldn't have to move.
15.Bb4+ isn't any tactic, but stragetically it would be good to exchange the dark squared bishop as white has his pawns on light squares. But that is nothing you need to worry about at your level.
10...Qd4 would win a piece since whites rook is trapped (10...Qd4 11.Nc3 Qxc3+ 12.Bd2)
19...Bxb4 is a bad sacrifice and it would be better to calmly play 19...Qb6 followed by 20...h5. One big reason it is bad is that white thretens both Bh3 and Rxa7 after 19...Bxb4 20.axb4 Qxb4 21.Qc1 (lucky for you your opponent played 21.Qc2 instead).
22...Bc4 was bad as you needed to defend your a-pawn with Rd7 or Ra1. But your opponent didn't take that pawn anyway.
26...Bb5 was actually bad as white can play 27.Bxb4 when you simply lost a pawn. Better was 26...Bxd3 when you will exchange your b-pawn to whites d-pawn and soon winning the pawn on e4 (white cannot defend it). As white missed 27.Bxb4 you won a piece instead and after 30.Rxa7 you had the game won and choose a good victory (but if white would play 31.0-0 you probably had to win a piece with Rb1 which is a bit more booring victory).
I stand corrected! I missed Qd4.
And I missed 10...Qd4, so we're even (but I edited my comment to make it look like I saw it all along)
