A reflection on cramped positions

This game is part of a Chess.com an exhibition match between the Pacific Northwest Team and Irish Team. I'll annotate the game so you don't have to read too much now. 








I had a great deal of fun this game. There was a a number of positional moves, and then some tactical flourish at the end. White managed to win due to some inaccuracies on blacks part, but mainly because he took advantage of black not castling, and not having any room to manuever and never getting his pieces active.
