Pointing out the weaknesses.

I was playing a game against WarrenParish about a month ago.  With a few nicely awkward tactics I had a decisive advantage - a Queen, Rook and a few advanced pawns against his King - and still had trouble achieving mate.  At one point my opponent asked me why I didn't finish him quickly?  I realised at that point that I didn't know my endgames (aye, for shame!).  For me this game represents a turning point in my own Chess development for this very reason.

Below is the game.
