I'm actually dissatisfied with my play in that game.  That was kind of a weak conversion.  I feel like I didn't actually play all that well.

In the position above it would have been a lot easier to convert if black just plays Kg7, Kf6, Ke6, etc. and activate the king. Instead black played a5 which let whites guard get into considerably better positions compared to the black king.

Agreed.  I was going to play it, but then decided to do a pawn storm just for the halibut.

Eh, but that gave me an almost fighting chance.
