If I only post my "good" moves, this blog has no integrity.  In this game, I became complacent against a lower rated player, a cardinal sin. Here, I just played 26. Ne5? which allows 27...Nxh3! 28. gxh3 Qg5+ 29. Kf1 Qxd2, with Black up a pawn and a winning position.  However, my opponent missed this shot and I dodged a bullet and went on to win after he blundered later on. You can never let your guard up regardless of your opponent's rating.
