Nice game from the both of you!
Your note after 12.cxd5 is a bit off in the evaluation. You made the right decision to play the Bishop back to d7. Your line given leaves you with opposite colored bishops and the exchange. While the exchange should be enough to win I feel that keeping the Light Squared Bishop to challenged your opponent's Light Squared Bishop is the right way to go.
Long castling would have been better as well as it defends the queenside. You don't have to worry about the "open files" against your king as your opponent only has one rook with which to attack it.
Yes, I doubt you would have played Re1+, the point was that because I didn't properly analyse that line, and just saw Black Rooks on Ranks 1 and 2, I lost 29 Bd5.
I think you played too passively after 15... 0-0, letting me back into the game.If you haven't seen this article yet, then have a read, principle #1 is particularly relevant I think.
When you are winning it's a whole different game
yes you are probably right here is another possibly winning combination for white, allthough passed pawns are very dangerous here for white,I still think there is play for both sides in this continuation, ps in response to bd5 I dont think I would have replyed with re1 as that was just winning for white too easy :-)
Some good analysis there Romantic666.
According to the computer 29 Bd5 was a win for white (look both Rooks and King on a white diagonal...begging for a tactic) but yes, it would have probably ended in a draw...gutted about 29 Ne7+.
Thanks for the game and well played
