I was playing as Black.
7. ... Bd6? white could just grab a central pawn at d59. ... fe? -the same , even worse, white could grab a pawn here the same, but it's much stronger now than on previous move because the position is opening up.
9. ... b5? - after that black is going to lose central pawn for sure. 9. ... d4 was better.
14. Qh5? - instead of nearly winning the game with 14. Ne6 Qe6 15.Nd5 Nd5 16. Bd5 Qd7 with very dangerous attack white allows black to get a very comfortable position with two central pawn, good bishops on a "freeroll".
The checkmate in the end is nice :-)
The idea is 28. hxg3 hxg3+ 29. Kg1 Rh1+ 30. Kxh1 Qh7+ 31. Kg1 Qh2+ 32. Kf1 Qh1#?
Nice checkmate ! In the rest of the game maybe, as Valen562 has written, white could take material advantage, but the checkmate was really beautiful !
Thanks I made too many mistakes.
