This is a Sicilian Defence vs. a King's Indian Attack in which I won due to, I believe, time pressure against Black, who I suspect played better than me otherwise.

 

Notable moments include a "coathanger" (pawn forking knight and bishop) on ply 15, a great little pawn gambit on ply 19, and a sudden reversal of fortune on ply 40.

 

Near the end, Black played under incredible time pressure. His last 15 or 20 moves were done with about 30 seconds on the clock throughout, staying alive through his allotted increments.

 

My question for you is this: Based on the position on ply 33, do you think Black could have won? Check out my (hopefully enlightening or at least mildly entertaining) in-game annotations.
