    I have played him i think 4 times only winning once.  this is probably the ideal guy for me to play, because he is better than me, but i have my chances.  Problem is , i dont see enough good moves.

    My general observation: You overestimate your attacking plans and underestimate your opponent's. Make sure your own king is safe before you start worrying about storming your opponent's king.

    "Now I have a mate in one." -- Not even if it was your move.

    You are absolutely correct.  I posted somewhere about that same thing.  I tend to get tunnel vision on my plans and ignore my opponents.  I realize it was not mate in one, otherwise i would have played Qa1+  and lost the Queen, i was meaning that if i could get rid of that bishop he could be mated.

    also, that 20. b3 move gets a ? from me.  It unnecessarily weakes the dark squares around his King.  You had a dark squared bishop pointing right through the h8-a1 diagonal with your Queen on that side too.  Perhaps you could have done some dark square penetration on those squares with the bishop and Queen.

    i thought the same thing.  i just couldn't think of a way to capitalize, any ideas?  Oh yeah and Irie mon.

    20... i should have put more thought into my plan.  its not like i am playing live here.  i have 1 or 2 days to think of my best move.  i am going to set up my board and see if i can figure the best plan of attack.

    17 ,... f5 ?  : that pawn d6 is weak, on the long run it will get lost - white is better.  

    20. b3 ! and also a5 !

    26...Kf8 and it looks like White is forced to play 27.Qd6+ Kf7 28.Qd4 and then Black can trade the queens (28...Qa2+ 29.Kc1 Qa1+) to get a probably drawn endgame if he wants, or keep trying something.
