Analysis of my game last nght-13-Feb-2014

I have been focusing much of my studies on understanding the g2-g4 or g7-g5 push.  I started playing the grob and borg to really help understand it's strenths and weaknesses.  If the push happens early castling is not a requirement.  In this game I played g7-g5 very early because white's gameplan was clear from move 2 and it was not very threatening.  The g-pawn push really seemed to cause white a lot of issues. Mostly it hurt hurt white's clock more than white's position.
