    I recently played a 5 min game in which I drew even though I had an advantage. Where could I have improved? Thanks to all who help analyze.

    16. Nd8 is a mistake. Black can now win your k night with 16. ... Ke7 since all the escape squares are covered. This is true for the next several moves as you both ignore it.

    34. Nxc5? It's not necessary to give up your knight. 34. Rc1 would have taken care of the c-pawn without giving up the knight.

    35. Kxa2 walks right into the fork 35. ... Rc2+. You need to make sure your pawns are defended.

    37. Kc4 walks right into the fork 37. ... Rf4+. After that the game is a drawn position.

    You should consider playing longer games (maybe 15 mins).  5 min games run into a lot of time trouble and will hinder your in-game and after-game analysis significantly.

    7th and 9th moves:  Nd5+ wins the bishop because the knight can't take the knight.   The rest I recommend you to study an opening which you really like. You also need a lot of practice. Study tactics as well(very important)

    35. Kxa2 was a bad move, you should have played f4

    even 37. Kc4

    Thanks for the help guys! I learned a ton just from reading your comments. Trysts I am on a tactical awesomeness streak and my rating rose 100+ points from those wins/draws.
