It's only been a day since I started seriously studying the Colle, and I already have my first victory! I'm so astonished because my opponent was a good player, who had beaten me time and time again in the past. Was this upset just a fluke? Perhaps it is, but I'd like better players to judge my game and give me the answer. Here is what transpired:

After this, it was simple:

13. N34 dxe4

14. Rxe4 Rae8

15. Ne5 Nxe5

16. Qh5+ Kg8

17. Rh4 g6

18. Qh7#


I pray better players to tell me if I could have played it better. Did I miss anything that I must consider, or commit a mistake that my opponent may not have seen? If so, please be blunt and let me know.

Many thanks.
