recent game i played with short endgame highlighting how sometimes walking through a pawn structure with your king is not clever.
@OP: I took just a quick glance at the game.
I think 2. ... Nf6 is inaccurate. You could have obtained a small advantage by playing 3. cxd5 Nxd5, 4. e4, grabbing central territory while forcing Black's Knight to move at least three times in the opening.
I'm not sure I would call your dark-square Bishop "strong" (at move 12), since it was biting on the d4-Pawn and didn't have much mobility.
Well done spotting the mating net at the end. Your Pawns and Rooks worked together well.
thank you for your comments
