I played black here. fairly happy with gameplay aside from poorly timed castle. I particularly likes the closing tactic, see move 28.
The game was awesome! Thanks for sharing.
I'm not so sure about your opening there, it looked like white was cramping you a little but he slipped up and allowed Bxf3 which you exploited nicely.
I liked your Nf5 move and your central pawn pushes. Your opponent helped you by putting his queen and bishop in forking range as well! But it would have been strong to play moves like d5 anyway.
Maybe castling kingside was a better idea on move 21? Then you automatically have a strong battery on the f-file and your a pawn stays protected. Even 21 ...Ke7 or d7 look decent to connect the rooks. Your king would be safe in the centre in this particular case.
Your finishing tactic was awesome, very well done there! But it looked like Qxh2 on moves 26 and 27 would have been devastating as well. Ng3+ would be coming and white is history.
