I just happen to study the King's Indian Defense a little bit before this game, but not this variation. I noticed immediately when my opponent didn't prevent me from playing e5! and I jumped on it, I missed punishing to the MAXIMUM extent with Bd3, but I was happy with my continuation. ---Feel free to comment in any way on the game, criticisms, tips or anything else, thanks!
3...c5 looks wierd after ...g6, if White takes the pawn how does Black take it back ? with the bishop after ...e6 ?
5...exd5 ? is the 'decisive mistake', as after 6.e4 ! 6..Ne5 runs into the game, the knight has no good square and 6...d4 ? 7.exf6 cxd4 8.Qe2+ (oops)
