Russian dance

In this game my opponent played the russian defense. I won a pawn with an in between move. He captured back the pawn, but that opened up a file against his king, which allowed me to win a bishop and the game.

    16.Qh5! is elegant. Also note that it is Russian Game or Petrov's Defence not Russian Defence.

    Nice win. On move 16, if Black plays Bf6, it looks like he should survive for a little longer than game variation, am I right?
