Mistakes as Black
Re8, Qe7, Qe5, Qd4, Qxd2
1) Find the pocket in the position, The hole in develpment
3) Give a side pawn to take a center pawn. Trade bad piece
4) Don't blow a lead. Apply pressure & triangulate.
6) After Queen moves, my double threat on e4 is no more and so b4 push is now something to worry about.
b6, Rxd2, Rd8, Kf8, Rd5, h5, e6, Ke78) How to win when you're 2 pawns up. Just shore up, trade a Rook, active other rook. Then start taking space.
Nh5, Qa5, Rdb8, e4, Bf8, Qa3, Qxa2, Rc8, Rab8, Qa19) Can't take Bishop because of the pin, so all focus on King attack.
c5, Bh6, Qxe5, Rxd3, Rxd1, e6, Rd8, Rd2, Nd510) Activate Bishop before taking free piece. Then take everything by force before trading.
Qg4, Rac8, Rxc5, f4, Kh8, Qxf4, Qg4, Rf5, Qd111) Reposition for access to back rank. Then reposition Rook for the same reason. Take, then push pawn since Rook is behind it. Always threaten mate. Prepare a mate for if he unprotects back rank.
h4, hxg3, Be5, Rad8, Bxg3, Rd512) A Bishop on g3 creates mating threats. Claiming the d file is good for 2 reasons. Blocks Queen checks.
c6, Nc5, Nxb3, Bd7, g413) Stop the threat and stop blocking Bishop by trading off.

Qe7, Bxh3, d4, Nxe7, 0-0, Nf5, Rac8, dxc3, Rfe8, Red815) Ruin his pawn structure while you can. Then active your pieces. Don't worry about pawn grabbing. You'll get them later if you active.

Rc8, a6, g5, Re8, Ne4, dxe4, Ra8, Nf6, Bc8, Rxc817) Unusual White opening. What to do when he's overloaded on one of my pieces? Well if one of his overloads is in front of his Queen...nullify it! Go a6 after to prevent Knight , take up space with pawn and Knight.
e6, Rxa2, Rb2, Bg5, Kg7, Bf4, f5, Kf6, Bxc7, Bb619) Equal material. How to fight! Can't allow him to take with Rook. So scare off Bishop, and trade a pawn.
Qc6, Rfc8, Bxc2, Qb620) When you double up in these situations. You'll either get a piece, or the pawn behind it. They can't move out of the way and double protect the pawn in time.
Qd8, Bh6, Qg5, Bxg4, Qxe321) See how the e3 pawn is weak? Maybe we can double up He can protect twice, but then I can trade off one of those.
Qb4, Qxf4 exf4,22) Optimize position in a take
